Airbag Unit

In order to be able to use identical steering column switches in cars with or without an airbag system, a standard steering column switch was developed for both versions. A separate plug-in type two-tone horn contact is inserted in opening (1) for cars without the airbag system {Rest of World).


This two-tone horn contact is omitted in cars with the airbag system. Contact is made via the airbag contact unit. Airbag contact unit is mounted with self-tapping screws in holes (2) with the front wheels pointing straight ahead.
