Overview of airbags
- Driver’s knee airbag
- Driver’s airbag
- Front passenger airbag
- Front passenger knee airbag
- Window curtain airbag
- Side airbag
The installation location of an airbag is identified by the AIRBAG symbol.
When enabled, an airbag can provide additional protection for the respective vehicle occupant.
Potential protection provided by each airbag:
- Knee airbag: thigh, knee, and lower leg
- Driver’s airbag, front passenger airbag: head and ribcage
- Side airbag: ribcage, also pelvis for front seat occupants
- Window curtain airbag: head
WARNING Risk of injury or death if the co-driver airbag is enabled
If the co-driver airbag is enabled, a child on the co-driver seat may be struck by the co-driver airbag during an accident.
NEVER use a rearward-facing child restraint system on a seat with an ENABLED FRONT AIRBAG; DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY to the CHILD can occur. When installing a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, observe the vehicle-specific information (/ page 61). Also, always observe the notes on rearward-facing or forward-facing child restraint systems on the front passenger seat.
Information on automatic front passenger airbag shutoff
The front passenger airbag can only be deployed in an accident if the PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF indicator lamp is off. If the front passenger seat is occupied, make sure, both before and during the journey, that the status of the front passenger airbag is correct (/ page 47).
NOTE Important points to remember if the front passenger seat is unoccupied
In an accident, the components of the restraint system may deploy unnecessarily on the front passenger side if:
- There are heavy objects on the front passenger seat.
- The seat belt tongue is engaged in the seat belt buckle of the front passenger seat and the front passenger seat is unoccupied.
Depending on the detected accident situation, the window curtain airbag on the front passenger side may deploy. The airbag is deployed regardless of whether the front passenger seat is occupied.
Protective capacity of the airbags
Depending on the accident situation, an airbag may supplement the protection offered by a cor‐rectly fastened seat belt. If you deviate from the correct seat position, the airbag cannot perform its intended pro‐tective function.
Each vehicle occupant must make sure of the following:
- Fasten seat belts correctly. Pregnant women must take particular care to ensure that the lap belt never lies across the abdomen.
- Adopt the correct seat position and keep as far away as possible from the airbags.
- Observe the following information.
- Always make sure that there are no objects between the airbag and the vehicle occupant.
To avoid the risks resulting from the deployment of an airbag, each vehicle occupant must observe the following information in particular:
- Before starting your journey, adjust your seat correctly; the driver’s seat and front passenger seat should be moved as far back as possible.
When doing so, always observe the information on the correct driver’s seat position (/ page 91).
- Only hold the steering wheel by the steering wheel rim. This allows the airbag to be fully deployed.
- Always lean against the seat backrest when the vehicle is in motion. Do not lean forwards or against the door or side window. You may otherwise be in the deployment area of the airbags.
- The occupants must always keep their feet on the floor. Do not put your feet on the cockpit, for example. Your feet may otherwise be in the deployment area of the airbag.
- If children are traveling in the vehicle, observe the additional notes.
- Always store and secure objects correctly. Objects in the vehicle interior may prevent an airbag from functioning correctly. Each vehicle occupant must always make sure of the follow‐ing in particular:
- There are no people, animals or objects between the vehicle occupants and an airbag.
- There are no objects between the seat, door, and door pillar (B-pillar).
- There are no hard objects, e.g. coat hangers, hanging on the grab handles or coat hooks.
- There are no accessory parts, such as mobile navigation devices, mobile phones, or cup holders, within the deployment area of an airbag, e.g. on the cockpit, on the door, on the side window or on the side trim. In addition, no connecting cables, tensioning straps or retaining straps must be routed or attached to the vehicle within the deployment area of an airbag. Always comply with the accessory manufacturer’s installation instructions and, in particular, the notes on suitable places for installation.
- There are no heavy, sharp-edged or fragile objects in the pockets of your clothing. Store such objects in a suitable place.
Risk of injury due to modifications to the cover of an airbag. If you modify the cover of an airbag or affix objects such as stickers to it, the airbag may no longer function correctly.
Never modify the cover of an airbag and do not affix objects to it. The installation location of an airbag is identified by the AIRBAG symbol.
Due to unsuitable seat covers, the airbags cannot protect vehicle occupants as intended. In addition, the operation of the automatic front passenger airbag shutoff could be restricted. You should only use seat covers that have been approved for the corresponding seats by Mercedes-Benz. The function of the airbags can be impaired due to modifications or incorrect work per‐formed on the doors or door trim, or if the doors are damaged.
- Never modify the doors or parts of the doors.
- Always have work on the doors or door trim carried out at a qualified specialist workshop.
A deployed airbag no longer offers any protection.
Have the vehicle towed to a qualified specialist workshop in order to have the deployed airbag replaced.
The function of the automatic front passenger airbag shutoff
The automatic front passenger airbag shutoff is able to detect whether the front passenger seat is occupied by a person or a child restraint system. The front passenger airbag and front passenger knee airbag are enabled or disabled accordingly. Objects trapped under the co-driver seat can interfere with the function of the automatic co-driver airbag shutoff or damage the system.
- Do not store any objects under the co-driver seat.
- When the co-driver seat is occupied, make sure that no objects are trapped under the co-driver seat.
When installing a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, always make sure of the following:
- Ensure that the child restraint system is positioned correctly.
- Always comply with the child restraint system manufacturer’s installation instructions.
- Never place objects (e.g. cushions) under or behind the child restraint system.
- Fully retract the seat cushion length adjustment.
- The entire base of the child restraint system must always rest on the sitting surface of the front passenger seat.
- The backrest of the forward-facing child restraint system must, as far as possible, be resting on the seat backrest of the front passenger seat.
- The child restraint system must not touch the roof or be put under strain by the head restraints. Adjust the seat backrest inclination and the head restraint setting accordingly.
