Airbag
system
The
side
airbag
system
supplements
the
safety
belts
and
can
help
to
reduce
the
risk
of
injury
to
the
driver's,
front
and
rear*
passenger's
upper
torso
on
the
side
of
the
vehicle
that
is
struck
in
a
side
collision.
The
airbag
deploys
only
in
side
im-
pacts
and
only
when
the
vehicle
acceleration
reg-
istered
by
the
control
unit
is
high
enough.
If
this
rate
is
below
the
reference
value
programmed
in-
to
the
control
unit,
the
side
airbags
will
not
be
triggered,
even
though
the
car
may
be
badly
damaged
as
a
result
of
the
collision.
It
is
not
pos-
sible
to
define
an
airbag
triggering
range
that
will
cover every
possible
angle
of
impact,
since
the
circumstances
will
vary
considerably
between
one
collision
and
another.
Important
factors
in-
clude,
for
example,
the
nature
(hard
or
soft)
of
the
impacting
object,
the
angle
of
impact,
vehicle
speed,
etc.

Important
safety
in-
structions
on
the
side
airbag
system.
Aside
from
their
normal
safety
function,
safety
belts
work
to
help
keep
the
driver
or
front
pas-
senger
in
position
in
the
event
of
a
side
collision
so
that
the
side
airbags
can
provide
protection.
The
airbag
system
is
not
a
substitute
for
your
safety
belt.
Rather,
it
is
part
of
the
overall
occu-
pant
restraint
system
in
your
vehicle.
Always
re-
member
that
the
side
airbag
system
can
only
help
to
protect
you
if
you
are
wearing
your
safety
belt
and
wearing
it
properly.
This
is
another
rea-
son
why
you
should
always
wear
your
safety
belts,
not
just
because
the
law
requires
you
to
do
so

General
information.
It
is
important
to
remember
that
while
the
sup-
plemental
side
airbag
system
is
designed
to
re-
duce
the
likelihood
of
serious
injuries,
other
inju-
ries,
for
example,
swelling,
bruising,
friction
burns
and
minor
abrasions
can
also
be
associated
with
deployed
side
airbags.
Remember
too, side
airbags
will
deploy
only
once
and
only
in
certain
kinds
of
accidents
-
your
safety
belts
are
always
there
to
offer
protection.
Vehicle
damage,
repair
costs
or
even
the
lack
of
vehicle
damage
are
not
necessarily
an
indication
of
over-sensitive
or
failed
airbag
activation.
In
some
collisions,
both
front
and
side
airbags
may
inflate.
Remember
too,
that
airbags
will
deploy
only
once
and
only
in
certain
kinds
of
collisions
-

your
safety
belts
are
always
there
to
offer
protec-
tion
in
those
accidents
in
which
airbags
are
not
supposed
to
deploy
or
when
they
have
already
deployed.
The
side
airbag
system
will
not
deploy:
when
the
ignition
is
turned
off
in
side
collisions
when
the
acceleration
meas-
ured
by
the
sensor
is
too
low
in
front-end
collisions
—in
rear-end
collisions
—in
rollovers.
In
some
types
of
accidents
the
front
airbags,
side
curtain
airbags
and
side
airbags
may
be
triggered
together.
Z\
WARNING
Safety
belts
and
the
airbag
system
will
only
provide
protection
when
occupants
are
in
the
proper
seating
position
>
page
299.
If
the
airbag
indicator
light
>
page
269
comes
when
the
vehicle
is
being
used,
have
the
system
inspected
immediately
by
your
authorized
Audi
dealer.
It
is
possible
that
the
airbag
will
inflate
when
it is
not
sup-
posed
to,
or
will
not
inflate
when
it
should.
How
supplemental
side
airbags
work
Side
airbags
deploy
instantly
and
can
help
re-
duce
the
risk
of
upper
torso
injuries
for
occu-
pants
who
are
properly
restrained.
