Volkswagen Touareg / Touareg repair>> Operation and car maintenance>> Safety systems>> Inflatable pillows
Expansion of inflatable pillows occurs in fractions of a second to a high speed. Therefore it is very important, that the driver and all passengers kept the correct landing on all extent of a trip.
Emergency braking before collision leads to that not fastened passenger sharply bends forward, in a zone of disclosure of an inflatable pillow. Receiving very serious damages is thus inevitable, up to the mortally dangerous. It in the same measure concerns also children.
Protective action of inflatable pillows is defined by a type of failure, the direction of blow and speed of the car.
For operation of inflatable safety cushions delay of the car registered by the control unit is solving. If at collision delay size less than a certain, in advance established size, face-to-face, lateral and window inflatable pillows do not reveal. Therefore not any collision can lead to disclosure of inflatable pillows.

Face-to-face pillows

Fig. 1.99 . A site of an inflatable pillow for the driver: in a steering wheel


The face-to-face inflatable pillow for the driver is in a steering wheel ( fig. 1.99

Fig. 1.100 . A site of an inflatable pillow for the forward passenger

), and for the forward passenger – in the forward panel (fig. 1.100) . Pillows are designated by "AIRBAG" inscription.
Face-to-face pillows together with seat belts provide protection of the head and the top part of a body of the driver and the forward passenger at head-on collisions.
Besides the main protective function seat belts provide such position of the driver and the forward passenger at face-to-face blow at which efficiency of protective action of an inflatable pillow is maximum.
Inflatable pillows do not replace seat belts and are a component of the general system of passive safety.
The system of face-to-face inflatable pillows includes:
– electronic control unit;
– two face-to-face inflatable pillows (air bag and gas generator);
– an alarm lamp in an instrument guard.
Operability of system of inflatable pillows is under continuous control. After ignition inclusion the alarm lamp lights up for some seconds (self-diagnostics).
The system is faulty, when an alarm lamp:
– at inclusion of ignition does not start to burn;
– in four seconds after inclusion of ignition does not die away;
– after inclusion of ignition dies away and again lights up;
– during movement lights up or flickers.
Face-to-face pillows do not reveal at:
– the switched-off ignition;
– easy front blows;
– easy lateral blows;
– blows in a back part of the car;
– car revolution.

Action of face-to-face pillows
The system of inflatable pillows works at strong front blows with threat of drawing of traumas to the driver and the forward passenger.
At certain types of failures face-to-face and lateral inflatable pillows, and also lateral inflatable curtains reveal.
At system operation air bags of pillows are filled with special gas and reveal. At an emphasis in completely opened pillows energy of advance of the driver and the forward passenger is extinguished, and the probability of receiving traumas decreases.
Under the influence of loading from weight of bodies there is a controllable production of gas from a pillow for mitigation of blow of the head and the top part of a body. After collision the air bag becomes so empty that does not disturb the forward review.
Filling of an air bag occurs to high speed in only a few fractions of a second, as provides reliable protection. At a devastation of an air bag there is a little dust. It quite normally and cannot cause for concern.

Fig. 1.101 . The provision of covers of modules of inflatable pillows after disclosure of pillows


Covers of modules of inflatable pillows at expansion of pillows reveal (fig. 1.101) . Thus covers remain fixed to a steering wheel and to the forward panel.

Lateral pillows

Fig. 1.102 . A lateral inflatable pillow in a seat of the driver


Lateral inflatable pillows are located in sitting of the driver (fig. 1.102) and in other seats. Places of placement of lateral pillows are designated by "AIRBAG" inscription in the top part of an upholstery of a back of a seat.
Lateral pillows together with seat belts provide additional protection of the top part of a body of the driver and passengers at lateral collisions.
At lateral blows the probability of receiving damages by the driver and the forward passenger decreases from blow. Besides the main protective function seat belts provide such position of the driver and passengers on extreme seats at lateral blow at which efficiency of protective action of inflatable pillows is maximum.
Lateral pillows do not reveal at:
– the switched-off ignition;
– easy lateral blows;
– easy front blows;
– blows in a back part of the car;
– car revolution.
The system of lateral inflatable pillows includes:
– electronic control unit;
– lateral pillows on outer sides of lobbies and back seats;
– an alarm lamp in an instrument guard.
Operability of system of inflatable pillows is under continuous control. After ignition inclusion the alarm lamp lights up for some seconds (self-diagnostics).

Action of lateral pillows

Fig. 1.103 . The revealed lateral pillows on the left side of the car


Lateral inflatable pillows reveal at strong lateral blows on the party of drawing of blow (fig. 1.103) .
At certain types of failures face-to-face, lateral and window inflatable pillows reveal.
At system operation air bags of pillows are filled with special gas.
Filling of an air bag occurs to high speed in only a few fractions of a second, as provides reliable protection. At a devastation of an air bag there is a little dust. It quite normally and cannot cause for concern.
At an emphasis in completely opened pillows energy of movement of the driver and the passenger is extinguished, and the probability of receiving traumas decreases.
Under the influence of loading from weight of bodies there is a controllable production of gas from a pillow for mitigation of blow of the head and the top part of a body.

ATTENTION
All works on inflatable pillows and the interfaced zones (for example, an upholstery of a back of a seat) should be carried out by only special workshops possessing the necessary tool and qualified personnel.
It is impossible to make any changes to system of inflatable pillows.
At not put on seat belts and the wrong landing the probability of receiving serious injuries essentially increases. This danger even more increases, when at strong collision there is a disclosure of inflatable safety cushions.
The maximum protective action of lateral pillows is reached only when seat belts are put correctly on and appropriate landing is observed.

Window pillows

Fig. 1.104 . A site of window inflatable pillows on the left side of the car


Window pillows are located on both parties of the car over doors (fig. 1.104) , and their site is designated by "AIRBAG" inscription.
Window pillows together with seat belts provide additional protection of the top part of a body of the driver and passengers at lateral collisions.
The system of window inflatable pillows includes:
– electronic control unit;
– window inflatable pillows (an air bag and a gas generator) for the driver, forward
the passenger and passengers on extreme back seats;
– an alarm lamp in an instrument guard.
Operability of system of inflatable pillows is under continuous control.
Window pillows do not reveal at:
– the switched-off ignition;
– head-on collisions;
– blows in a back part of the car;
– car revolution;
– easy lateral blows.

Action of window pillows
Window inflatable pillows reveal at strong lateral blows on the party of drawing of blow.
At certain types of failures face-to-face, lateral and window inflatable pillows reveal.
At system operation air bags of pillows are filled with special gas. Thus window pillows block the area of lateral glasses and body racks.
Filling of an air bag occurs to high speed in only a few fractions of a second, as provides reliable protection. At a devastation of an air bag there is a little dust. It quite normally and cannot cause for concern.
At an emphasis in completely opened curtains energy of movement of the driver and passengers is extinguished, and the probability of receiving traumas decreases.
Under the influence of loading from weight of bodies there is a controllable production of gas from a pillow for mitigation of blow of the head and the top part of a body.

Shutdown of a face-to-face and lateral pillow for the forward passenger
At the disconnected face-to-face pillow for the forward passenger the lateral pillow is disconnected also. All other inflatable pillows and curtains remain are efficient.

NOTE
At installation on a forward seat of a children's seat with position of the child against the direction of movement it is necessary to disconnect face-to-face and lateral inflatable pillows for the forward passenger.

Shutdown of a face-to-face pillow
Switch off ignition.

Fig. 1.105 . The provision of a key at shutdown and return connection of inflatable pillows


Turn the ignition key the special switch in the central console in situation, perpendicular to the movement direction (fig. 1.105) .

Fig. 1.106 . A control lamp of shutdown of inflatable pillows in the central console


Be convinced that at the included ignition a control lamp of "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF" in the central console (fig. 1.106) constantly burns.

Return inclusion of pillows
Switch off ignition.
Turn the ignition key the special switch in the central console in situation in the movement direction.
Be convinced that at the included ignition the control lamp of "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF" in the central console does not burn.

ATTENTION
Inflatable pillows for the forward passenger should be disconnected only when as an exception on a forward seat establish a children's seat with position of the child by a back in the movement direction.

Fastening of a children's seat by means of ISOFIX system
At installation and removal of a children's armchair surely be guided by the instruction of the manufacturer.
– Shift a seat of the forward passenger in the longitudinal direction completely back.
– Insert a children's seat into „ISOFIX» eyes to a heard sound of fixing of an armchair in eyes.
– For check of reliability of fastening try to extend it, having taken a seat from two parties.

Fig. 1.107 . Schematical image: fixing eyes on the basis of a back seat for a children's armchair of ISOFIX


On two eyes of "ISOFIX" are at extreme back seats and at the right forward seat. Eyes of "ISOFIX" are attached to a body. They are between a back and a pillow of seats (fig. 1.107) .

ATTENTION
When you attach a children's seat with ISOFIX system to a back seat with electroadjustments, it is impossible to regulate the provision of a seat in the course of seat fastening. Electric devices of the mechanism of adjustment, a pillow or children's seats can be damaged.
