AIR BAG OBSTRUCTION

WARNING

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

WARNING

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

WARNING

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

WARNING

Do not use non-approved or accessory seat covers that have not been designed for use with air bags. Non-approved seat covers or accessories could interfere with air bag operation. If in doubt, consult a retailer/authorized 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 air bags. 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 air bag cover. Items in these positions could interfere with the inflation of the air bag or be propelled inside the vehicle, potentially causing injury to the occupants.

NOTES

Unauthorized modifications of the vehicle or parts may invalidate the vehicle's warranty.

Air bags cannot deploy correctly if obstructed. Examples of obstructions are:

  • Any part of an occupant's body in contact with, or close to, an air bag cover.

  • Objects placed on, or close to, an air bag cover.

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

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

  • Seat covers which are not approved or specifically designed for use with seat-mounted air bags.

The above list is not exhaustive. The driver and passengers are responsible for making sure that the air bags are not obstructed in any way.
