The VIN Plate (see Vehicle Identification Plate page) includes the Interior Trim Feature Code to accurately identify the colour ways used for the vehicle trim. The Part Suffix Code is appended to the specific seat part number to define the seat type and colour. When ordering replacement parts the interior trim colours should be specified using the codes and colour names given below. Many options are available hower denotes MG Rover recommentded colour combinations.

Refer to the EPC for a complete listing of all codes used on MGF/MGTF trim and seats.

The Interior Trim Code governs the colour of seats, door casing inserts, steering wheel (leather only), handbrake and gear lever gaiter. Technical Black finishers are standard, with options of Carbon Fibre and Wood. Trim Environment is a separate option which governs the interior mouldings colour way.

SRS Component Replacement Policy

The following information details the policy for replacement of Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) components; either as a result of a vehicle accident or as a result of vehicle age.

Impacts which do not deploy the airbags or seat belt pre-tensioners

Check for structural damage in the area of impact, paying particular attention to bumper armatures, longitudinals, crash cans and bracketry.

Impacts which deploy the airbags or seat belt pre-tensioners

The replacement and inspection policy is dependent on the type and severity of the crash condition. The following guidelines are the minimum that should be exercised as a result of the deployment of specific SRS components.

Front airbag deployment – driver and passenger

If the front airbags are deployed the following parts must be replaced:

Driver airbag module

Passenger airbag module (where fitted)

Flyleads (where applicable) connecting front airbag modules to the SRS Harness

Front seat buckle pre-tensioners

Drivers seat belt retractor

Rotary Coupler


In addition the following parts should be inspected for damage and replaced as necessary:

Front passengers seat belt retractor (webbing, tongue latching and anchorage point)

Fascia Moulding adjacent to passenger airbag module (where fitted)

Steering Wheel (if damage is evident)

Front Seat Frames and Head Restraints (if there is evidence of damage to the seat frame or cushion pan)

Steering column (if adjustment is lost or there are signs of collapse)

Rear impacts

Rear impacts may cause the seat belt pre-tensioners to deploy. If this occurs, both pre-tensioner units must be replaced. In addition the following parts should be inspected for damage and replaced as necessary:

Seat Frames

Seat belts (retractors, webbing, tongue latching and body anchorage points)


Periodic replacement of SRS components

The performance of the propellants within airbags and pre-tensioners will deteriorate over a period of time. As a result, it is essential that the airbags and pre-tensioners are periodically replaced to maintain occupant safety. Airbags, seat belt pre-tensioners and the rotary coupler should be replaced at 15 year intervals.

Spring and Damper Identification

Road Springs and Dampers are dependent on vehicle specification. Road Springs can be identified by a colour code – painted on the coils of the spring. Dampers can be identified by a colour code – painted on the damper body, they are not handed.

Refer to the relevant page in the EPC for the latest applicable part numbers.
