Range Rover Evoque: Airbag operation

correctly For the airbags to operate correctly the roof lining and door post trims must be in good condition, correctly fitted, and free from obstruction. Any damage, wear, or incorrect fitment should be referred to your Dealer/ Authorised Repairer as soon as possible for examination and repair.
Do not allow passengers to obstruct the operation of the airbags by placing any part of their person, or any objects, in contact with, or close to, an airbag module. Only use approved accessories (e.g. seat covers).
Ensure that a gap is maintained between the side of the vehicle and the head and torso. This will enable unobstructed inflation of the curtain and seat mounted side airbags.
Airbags inflate at high speeds. To minimise the risk of injury, ensure that all vehicle occupants wear correctly positioned seat belts, sit correctly in the seats, and position the seats as far back as practical.
Airbag inflation takes place instantaneously and cannot protect against the effects of secondary impacts. Under these circumstances the only protection will be provided by a correctly worn seat belt.
Phone systems should only be installed by qualified persons familiar with the operation of and requirements for, vehicles fitted with SRS. If you are in any doubt, seek advice from your Dealer/Authorised repairer.

Airbag deployment is dependent on the rate at which the passenger compartment changes velocity following the collision. Circumstances affecting different collisions (vehicle speed, angle of impact, type and size of object hit, etc.), vary considerably and will affect the rate of deceleration accordingly.

The Supplementary Restraint System components include:
- SRS warning indicator.

- Rotary coupler.

- Airbag modules.

- Seat belt pre-tensioners (front seats).

- Airbag diagnostic control unit.

- Crash sensors.

- Airbag wiring harness.

Airbags cannot deploy correctly if they are obstructed. Examples of obstructions are:
- Any part of an occupants body in contact with, or close to, an airbag cover.

- Objects placed on, or close to, an airbag cover.

- Clothing, sun screens, or other material hanging from grab handles.

- Clothing, cushions, or other material, covering seat mounted airbags.

- Seat covers which are not approved by Land Rover, or specifically designed for use with seat mounted airbags.

This list is not exhaustive and it remains the responsibility of the driver and passengers to ensure that the airbags are not obstructed in any way.

Note: The airbags and SRS are not designed to operate as a result of:

- Rear impacts.

- Minor front impacts.

- Minor side impacts.

- Heavy braking.

- Driving over bumps and pot holes.

serious injury or death irrespective of High speed impacts may cause serious injury or death irrespective of safety features fitted to a vehicle.
The airbag SRS cannot provide protection in some types of impact.
Under these circumstances the only protection will be provided by a correctly worn seat belt.


 Disabling the passenger airbag (not Australia)

Crash test data and statistics show that the safest place for a child to be restrained is in a child seat correctly fitted to the vehicle's rear seat. Do not use a child restraint on a seat pr

 Front airbags

The front passenger and driver airbags are able to deploy in two stages, depending on the severity of the frontal impact. In a severe impact, the airbags inflate fully to stage two giving maximum

 Side airbags

These are designed to protect the thorax region of the torso and will deploy only in the event of a side impact and then, only on the side of the impact.
