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

WARNING WARNING

When an air bag inflates, a fine powder is released. This is normal and not an indication of a malfunction. The powder may cause irritation to the skin and should be thoroughly flushed from eyes and any cuts or abrasions. This powder can cause breathing difficulties for asthma sufferers or other people with respiratory problems. If this occurs, get out of the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so or get fresh air by opening a window. If breathing problems persist, seek medical attention.

WARNING WARNING

Air bag deployment is accompanied by a very loud noise which may cause discomfort and temporary loss of hearing.

After inflation, the front and seat mounted side air bags deflate immediately. This provides a gradual cushioning effect for the occupants and also ensures that the driver’s forward vision is not obscured.
