18.22. Safety cushion of the driver


On cars the auxiliary system of safety (is established to SRS – Supplemental Restrain System) better known as safety cushions. The system consists of the sensors established from the forward party of the car, safety cushions and the control unit and diagnostics.

The safety cushion of the driver is established in the center of a steering wheel. For a signal transmission from the control unit to a safety cushion the spiral wire (spring) established on a steering column is used. The spiral wire transmits a signal irrespective of the provision of a steering wheel. The pyrotechnic gas generator will transform an operating electric signal to an ignition signal therefore the powder decays, inflating a safety cushion bag.


Do not assort any of components auxiliary system of safety of SRS. Dismantling of components can put safety system out of action.

Do not establish on the car of a safety cushion or other components from other car.

At performance of any works on system of safety or carrying out electric welding on the car deactivate safety system.

Transport a safety airbag separately, a bag up.

At transportation do not place a hand on a safety cushion.

Exclude hit on a safety cushion of solvents or clearing substances.

Have no on a safety cushion extraneous subjects which safety cushions at expansion can put serious traumas.


The safety cushion is connected by sockets of orange and dark blue color. The section of the mother socket consists of two separate parts, one for a safety cushion, and the second for a sound signal. These parts mechanically incorporate for connection to dark blue section of the socket of a safety cushion and are fixed by two latches excluding their spontaneous separation. The section of the socket of a safety cushion also has the clamps connecting two parts of the socket, after their separation. This feature excludes unintentional expansion of a safety cushion. At division of two sections of the socket, first of all it is necessary to disconnect section of the socket of orange color. Connection is necessary for carrying out in sequence, return to separation.

1. From a reverse side of a steering wheel turn out four bolts of fastening of a safety cushion.
2. Separate the safety cushion block from a steering wheel.
3. Disconnect the electric socket of a safety cushion from a spiral wire and remove a safety cushion from the car.


1. Be convinced that forward wheels are established directly forward.
2. Holding a safety cushion at the maximum distance, connect dark blue sockets then connect orange sockets.


Consecutive connection of orange and dark blue sockets their unique correct connection. When sockets are properly assembled, making insignificant effort, shift them together before accurately heard click. If for connection of sockets it is necessary to make considerable effort, means, sockets are assembled incorrectly.

3. Establish a safety cushion on a steering wheel, thus be careful not to clamp a plait of wires.
4. Fix a safety cushion four bolts, having tightened them the demanded moment.

Inhaling moment: 8–12 N • m
5. Check lack of codes of malfunction of a safety cushion.


If the spiral wire acted in film, establish it as appropriate.
