The airbag system consists of a

number of individual systems

depending on the scope of

equipment.
When triggered the airbags inflate

within milliseconds. They also deflate

during the collision.

9 Warning

If handled improperly the airbag

systems can be triggered in an

explosive manner.

Note

The airbag systems and belt

pretensioner control electronics are

located in the centre console area.

this area.
Do not stick anything on the airbag

covers and do not cover them with

other materials.
Each airbag is triggered only once.

Have deployed airbags replaced by

a workshop. Furthermore, it might be

necessary to have the steering

wheel, the instrument panel, parts of

the panelling, the door seals,

handles and the seats replaced.
Do not make any modifications to

the airbag system as this will

invalidate the vehicle type approval.

an airbag in the roof frame on each

side. This can be identified by the

word AIRBAG on the roof pillars.
The curtain airbag system is triggered

in the event of a side-on impact of a

certain severity. The ignition must be

switched on.

The inflated airbags cushion the

impact, thereby reducing the risk of

injury to the head in the event of a

side-on impact considerably.

9 Warning

only suitable for hanging up light

articles of clothing, without coat

hangers. Do not keep any items in

these clothes.

Airbag deactivation

The front passenger airbag system

must be deactivated if a child restraint
