Airbags
are
only
supplemental
restraints.
For
airbags
to
do
their
job,
occupants
must
always
properly
wear
their
safety
belts
and
be
in
a
prop-
er
seating
position.
For
your
safety
and
the
safety
of
your
passen-
gers,
before
driving
off,
always:
>
Adjust
the
driver's
seat
and
steering
wheel
properly

Ina
collision,
airbags
must
inflate
within
the
blink
of
an
eye
and
with
considerable
force.
The
supplemental
airbags
can
cause
injuries
if
the
driver
or
the
front
seat
passenger
is
not
seated
properly.
Therefore
in
order
to
help
the
airbag
to
do
its
job,
it
is
important,
both
as
a
driver
and
as
a
passenger
to
sit
properly
at
all
times.
By
keeping
room
between
your
body
and
the
steering
wheel
and
the
front
of
the
passenger
compartment,
the
airbag
can inflate
fully
and
completely
and
provide
supplemental
protection
in
certain
frontal
collisions

that

restrained

There
is
a
lot
that
the
driver
and
the
passengers
can
and
must
do
to
help
the
individual
safety
fea-
tures
installed
in
your
Audi
work
together
as
a
system.
Proper
seating
position
is
important
so
that
the
front
airbag
on
the
driver
side
can
do
its
job.
If
you
have
a
physical
impairment
or
condition
that
prevents
you
from
sitting
properly
on
the
driver
seat
with
the
safety
belt
properly
fastened
and
reaching
the
pedals,
or
if
you
have
concerns
with
regard
to
the
function
or
operation
of
the
Ad-
vanced
Airbag
System,
please
contact
your
au-
thorized
Audi
dealer
or
qualified
workshop,
or
call

Relations

for
possible
modifications
to
your
vehicle.
When
the
airbag
system
deploys,
a
gas
generator
will
fill
the
airbags,
break
open
the
padded
cov-
ers,
and
inflate
between
the
steering
wheel
and
the
driver
and
between
the
instrument
panel
and
the
front
passenger.
The
airbags
will
deflate
im-
mediately
after
deployment
so
that
the
front
oc-
cupants
can see
through
the
windshield
again
without
interruption.
All
of
this
takes
place
in
the blink
of
an
eye,
so
fast
that
many
people
don't
even
realize
that
the
airbags
have
deployed.
The airbags
also
inflate
with
a
great
deal
of
force
and
nothing
should
be
in
their
way
when
they
deploy.
Front
airbags
in
combination
with
properly
worn
safety
belts
slow
down
and
limit
the
occupant's
forward
move-
ment.
Together
they
help
to
prevent
the
driver
and
front
seat
passenger
from
hitting
parts
of
the
inside
of
the
vehicle
while
reducing
the
forces
acting
on
the
occupant
during
the
crash.
In
this
way
they
help
to
reduce
the
risk of
injury
to
the
head
and
upper
body
in
the
crash.
Airbags
do
not
protect
the
arms
or
the
lower
parts
of
the
body.
Both
front
airbags
will
not inflate
in
all
frontal
collisions.
The
triggering
of
the
airbag
system
de-
pends
on
the
vehicle
deceleration
rate
caused
by
the
collision
and
registered
by
the
electronic
con-
trol
unit.
If
this
rate
is
below
the
reference
value
programmed
into
the
control
unit,
the
airbags
will
not
be
triggered,
even
though
the
car
may
be
badly
damaged
as
a
result
of
the
collision.
Vehi-
cle
damage,
repair
costs
or
even
the
lack
of
vehi-
cle
damage
is
not
necessarily
an
indication
of
whether
an
airbag
should
inflate
or
not.
Since
the
circumstances
will
vary
considerably
between
one
collision
and
another,
it
is
not
possi-
ble
to
define
a
range
of
vehicle
speeds
that
will
cover every
possible
kind
and
angle
of
impact
that
will
always
trigger
the
airbags.
Important
factors
include,
for
example,
the
nature
(hard
or
soft)
of
the
object
which
the
car
hits,
the
angle
of
impact,
vehicle
speed,
etc.

front
airbags
