Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Checking airbag securing parts after an accident

All damaged securing parts must always be renewed. It is not permissible to bend the components back into shape or »make them fit«
The following components must be checked after the relevant airbag has been triggered.
In the event of the front passenger airbag being triggered:
  •   Central tube for dash panel; it must be possible to install the supports for the front passenger airbag and front passenger airbag unit tension-free. Otherwise the central tube must also be renewed.
  •   Check the glove compartment for damage. Renew it if damaged.
In the event of the driver airbag being triggered:
  Steering wheel: remove the steering wheel and place on a flat surface together with the steering collar. The full face of the steering collar must be in contact with the flat surface. Otherwise the steering wheel must be renewed.
  Check steering wheel for smoke residues. If any smoke residues are found, the steering wheel must be renewed.
   

Accident without airbag triggering

If airbag warning lamp -K75- does not indicate a fault, there is no requirement to renew pyrotechnic components. The seat belts should be checked separately.
