Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Types of front passenger front airbag system
 → Indicator lamps
 → Description and function of the airbags
 → Front airbags
 → Switching the front passenger front airbag on and off manually using the key-operated switch
 → Side airbags

 → Curtain airbags The vehicle is equipped with a front airbag for the driver and front passenger. The front airbags can provide front seat occupants with additional chest and head protection if the seat, seat belts, head restraints and, in the case of the driver, steering wheel are adjusted and used correctly. Airbags are meant only for additional protection. The airbags are not a substitute for seat belts. Seat belts must always be worn, even when the front seats are equipped with front airbags.

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

Never rely solely on the airbag system for your protection.

WARNING

The risk of injury increases if there are any objects located between the vehicle occupants and the deployment area of the airbag when it is triggered. This will alter the deployment zone of the airbag, or the objects will be flung against the body.

WARNING

The airbag system can only be triggered once. The system will have to be replaced if the airbags have been triggered.

WARNING

Fine dust or steam may be released when the airbags trigger. This is normal and does not mean that there is a fire in the vehicle.

WARNING

Cleaning agents that contain solvents cause the surface of the airbag modules to become porous. In an accident that triggers the airbag, loose plastic parts can cause serious injury.
