OBSTRUCCIÓN DE UN AIRBAG

WARNING

Do not obstruct operation of the airbags by placing any part of the body or any objects in contact with, or close to, an airbag module. If an airbag inflates, objects or any part of an occupant could interfere with the inflation of the airbag. Objects or any part of the body could also be propelled inside the vehicle, potentially causing injury to the occupants.

WARNING

Do not allow passengers or objects to obstruct the operation of the airbags. Do not place objects, or any parts of the body, e.g., feet or knees, in contact with, or in close proximity to, an airbag module. If the airbag inflates, obstructions could interfere with the inflation of the airbag. Any obstructions could also be propelled inside the vehicle, potentially causing injury to the occupants.

WARNING

Do not place objects between an airbag module and a seat occupant. Objects placed in this position could interfere with the inflation of the airbag or be propelled inside the vehicle, potentially causing injury to the occupants.

WARNING

Do not use non-approved seat covers or accessory seat covers that have not been designed for use with airbags. Non-approved seat covers or accessories could interfere with airbag operation. Doing so may interfere with airbag operation, which may result in serious injury or death in the event of an accident. If in doubt, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.

WARNING

Make sure that a gap is maintained between the side of the vehicle, and the head and torso. The gap enables unobstructed inflation of the curtain and seat-mounted side airbags. Failure to maintain a gap may result in injury to the occupant in the event of an accident.

WARNING

Do not attach or position items on, or close to, the roof lining, front seatbacks, or to an airbag cover. Items in these positions could interfere with the inflation of the airbag or be propelled inside the vehicle, potentially causing injury to the occupants.

NOTES

Unauthorised modification of the vehicle or parts may invalidate the vehicle's warranty.

Airbags cannot deploy correctly if they are obstructed. Examples of obstructions are:

  • Any part of an occupant’s body in contact with, or close to, an airbag cover.

  • Objects placed on, or close to, an airbag cover.

  • Clothing, sun screens, or other material hanging from grab handles.

  • Clothing, cushions, or other material covering seat-mounted airbags.

  • Seat covers which are not approved by the vehicle manufacturer, or specifically designed for use with seat-mounted airbags.

The above list is not exhaustive. It remains the responsibility of the driver and passengers to make sure the airbags are not obstructed in any way.
