if you are just looking to replace the carpet in your fusion you are going to have to remove the center console, and the seats and some of the interior trim that is in the way. first thing you will want to do is to disable the airbag system

Depowering Procedure

WARNING: Always wear eye protection when servicing a vehicle. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury.

WARNING: Never probe the electrical connectors on air bag, Safety Canopy® or side air curtain modules. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the accidental deployment of these modules, which increases the risk of serious personal injury or death.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of accidental deployment, do not use any memory saver devices. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death.

NOTE: The air bag warning indicator illuminates when the correct Restraints Control Module (RCM) fuse is removed and the ignition switch is ON.

NOTE: The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle to the customer.

  1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
  1. At the Smart Junction Box (SJB) , located below the LH side of the instrument panel, remove the cover and the RCM fuse 25 (7.5A) from the SJB . For additional information, refer to the Wiring Diagram Manual.
  1. Turn the ignition ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator for at least 30 seconds. The air bag warning indicator will remain lit continuously (no flashing) if the correct RCM fuse has been removed. If the air bag warning indicator does not remain lit continuously, remove the correct RCM fuse before proceeding.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
  1. WARNING: Always deplete the backup power supply before repairing or installing any new front or side air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) component and before servicing, removing, installing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side impact sensors or the restraints control module (RCM). Nearby components include doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood latches.

    Refer to the Description and Operation portion of Section 501-20B for location of the RCM and impact sensor(s).

     

    To deplete the backup power supply energy, disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least 1 minute. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power supplies (if equipped).

     

    Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury or death in the event of an accidental deployment.

     

    Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute. For additional information, refer to Section 414-01.

before you disconnect the battery you will want to position the seats (if they are power seats) in the correct position to be able to remove the bolts from underneath
