The side-airbag module consists of an air bag, air bag cover, inflator and their fasteners. The modules are installed in the outer side supports of the driver’s and front passenger’s seatbacks. The side-airbags help protect the occupants regardless of the seat position and seatback angle.
The air bags are compactly folded and stored under the cover. On the side of the air bag, there are holes through which gas is partially released to alleviate shock to the occupant when the air bag is deployed.
For the inflator, the gas which is harmless to the human body has been used.
