Range Rover Evoque: Airbag deployment effects

fine When an airbag 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. If breathing difficulty is experienced, leave the vehicle if possible or open the windows or doors to allow fresh air in.
Airbags inflate at high speed and can cause injuries. To minimise the risk of injury, ensure that all occupants wear correctly positioned seat belts, sit correctly in the seats and position the seats as far back as is practicable.
Airbag deployment is accompanied by a very loud noise which may cause discomfort and temporary loss of hearing.
After inflation, some airbag components will be very hot. Do not touch the airbag components until they have cooled sufficiently.
