Range Rover: Air bag obstruction - Occupant safety - Range Rover Owner's ManualRange Rover: Air bag obstruction

WARNING WARNING

Do not obstruct the operation of the air bags by placing any part of your person or any objects in contact with, or close to, an air bag module. If the airbag inflates, objects or any part of your person could interfere with the inflation of the airbag or be propelled inside the vehicle, causing injury to the occupants.

Do not allow passengers to obstruct the operation of the air bags by placing feet, knees or any other part of the body, or any other objects in contact with, or in close proximity to, an air bag module.

Do not place objects between the air bag module and the seat occupant.

WARNING WARNING

Do not use non-approved seat covers or accessory seat covers that have not been designed for use with air bags. If in doubt, consult your Land Rover Retailer/Authorized Repairer.

WARNING WARNING

Ensure that a gap is maintained between the side of the vehicle, and the head and torso. This will enable unobstructed inflation of the curtain, and seat mounted side air bags.

WARNING WARNING

Do not attach or position items on, or close to the roof lining, front seat backrests, or to an air bag cover, which could interfere with the inflation of the air bag or be propelled inside the vehicle, causing injury to the occupants.

Note: Unauthorized modification of the vehicle or parts may invalidate the vehicle's warranty.

Air bags cannot deploy correctly if they are obstructed. Examples of obstructions are:-

  • • Any part of an occupants body in contact with, or close to, an air bag cover.
  • • Objects placed on, or close to, an air bag cover.
  • • Clothing, sun screens, or other material hanging from grab handles.
  • • Clothing, cushions, or other material, covering seat mounted air bags.
  • • Seat covers which are not approved by Land Rover, or specifically designed for use with seat mounted air bags.

This list is not exhaustive, and it remains the responsibility of the driver and passengers to ensure that the air bags are not obstructed in any way.
