Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Additional safety regulations for side airbag

Under no circumstances may seat covers be fitted which have not been specifically approved for use on Volkswagen seats with side airbags.
  The backrest padding must not be cut out in the area of the side airbag.
  When installing, make sure the seam for the side airbag is straight.
  All padding clips (metal and plastic clips) must be renewed.
  When installing, all padding clips must be fitted in the same positions as the original ones.
  If the seat cover fabric is damaged (tears, burn marks, etc.) in the vicinity of the side airbag, the cover must always be replaced for safety reasons, as otherwise the side airbag will not inflate properly.
  Repairs may not be carried out on the backrest cover in the area of the side airbag (because of the special thread and precisely defined seam).
  Renew the backrest padding after the side airbags have been triggered.
  All damaged components must be renewed after an accident. The original airbag unit can still be used if no signs of damage are found.
  If side airbag units are renewed, the sticker for the airbag number must be removed from the new side airbag unit and stuck over the old sticker on the seat pan.
  Never poke upholstery needles or any other sharp objects through the seat cover fabric in the vicinity of the airbag, seat occupied sensor, front passenger side -G128- and the seat occupied sensor mat.
