Airbag
system
that
the
side
curtain
airbags
can
provide
protec-
tion.
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
airbag
system
can
only
help
to
protect
you
if
you
are
wearing
your
safety
belt
and
wearing
it
properly.
This
is
another
reason
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
side
curtain
airbag
system
is
designed
to
help
reduce
the
likelihood
of
serious
injuries,
other
injuries,
for
example,
swelling,
bruising,
friction
burns
and
minor
abrasions
can
also
be
associated
with
these
airbags
upon
deployment.
Remember
too,
these
airbags
will
deploy
only
once
and
only
in
certain
kinds
of
accidents
-
your
safety
belts
are
always
there
to
offer
protection.
The
side
curtain
airbag
system
basically
consists
of:
The
electronic
control
module
and
external
side
impact
sensors
—The
side
curtain
airbags
above
the
windows
of
the
outer
seating
positions
with
ejection
miti-
gation
features
The
airbag
indicator
light
in
the
instrument
panel
The
airbag
system
is
monitored
electronically
to
make
certain
it
is
functioning
properly
at
all
times.
Each
time
you
turn
on
the
ignition,
the
air-
bag
system
indicator
light
will
come
on
for
a
few
seconds
(self
diagnostics).
The
side
curtain
airbag
is
not
activated:
if
the
ignition
is
turned
off
in
side
collisions
when
the
acceleration
meas-
ured
by
the
sensor
is
too
low
—in
rear-end
collisions.
Z\
WARNING
Safety
belts
and
the
airbag
system
will
only
provide
protection
when
occupants
are
in
the
proper
seating
position
>
page
53,
Front
seats.
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
side
curtain
airbags
work
Side
curtain
airbags
can
work
together
with
side
airbags
to
help
reduce
the
risk
of
head
and
upper
torso
injuries
for
occupants
who
are
properly
re-
strained.

of
principle:
Inflated
side
curtain
air-
bags
on
the
left
side
The
side
curtain
airbags
inflate
between
the
oc-
cupant
and
the
windows
in
a
side
collision
>
fig.
242.
When
the
system
is
triggered,
the
side
curtain
airbag
is
filled
with
propellant
gas
and
breaks
through
a
seam
above
the
front
and
rear
side
windows
identified
by
the
AIRBAG
label.
In
order
to
help
provide
this
additional
protection,
the
side
curtain
airbag
must
inflate
within
the blink
of
an
eye
at
very
high
speed
and
with
great
force.
The
side
curtain
airbag
could
injure
you
if
your
seating
position
is
not
proper
or
upright
or
if
items
are
located
in
the
area
where
the
supple-
mental
side
curtain
airbag
inflates.
This
applies
especially
to
children
>
page
303.
Although
they
are
not
a
soft
pillow,
side
curtain
airbags
can
“cushion”
the
impact
and
in
this
way
they
can
help
to
reduce
the
risk of
injury
to
the
head
and
the
upper
part
of
the
body.
A
fine
dust
may
develop
when
the
airbag
deploys.
This
is
quite
normal
and
does
not
mean
there
is
a
fire
in
the
vehicle.
