The components that make up the airbag system are sensitive to electrical or physical interference. Electrical and/or physical interference could easily damage the system and cause inadvertent operation or a malfunction of the airbag module. Airbags should only be repaired by an authorised repairer. If the airbags are not repaired correctly, they may not operate correctly during a collision, which may lead to serious injury or death.

To prevent malfunction of the airbag system, always consult a retailer/authorised repairer before fitting any of the following:

  • Electronic equipment such as a mobile phone, two-way radio, or in-vehicle entertainment system.

  • Accessories attached to the front of the vehicle.

  • Any modification to the front of the vehicle.

  • Any modification involving the removal or repair of any wiring or component in the vicinity of any of the airbag system components. The components include the steering wheel, steering column, and instrument and fascia panels.

  • Any modification to the fascia panels or steering wheel.
