vs calais
hey guys, i just bought a vs calais and the passenger airbag cover has been warped by the sun and the side closest to the windscreen is sticking out, i have viewed posts on how to fix it and such but was wondering if it would pass a roadworthy as it is or if it would needed to be fixed?
thanks guys

Shouldn't. My car passed rego and all sides of mine have lifted so that you can get your fingers under it. It's only a piece of trim, and shouldn't impede the airbag.

This is a very common problem with these airbag covers.

as mentioned, roadworthy shouldn't be impacted because of this. it's simply a cover that attached to the airbag door, and lifts in event of an accident for the bag to deploy.

try a search on teh forums bud, but there isn't much that can be done short of buying a new one. even they're rare as hen's teeth and not something the faint hearted sould tackle ;)

I had a bit of a laugh when I saw your post as it is typical of the cars to have his problem. I removed mine (Ripped it off) and went to Holden to get another one.......They don't stock them anymore. I did the usual and went to 'Pick and payless' and found four still intact on the dash of the cars. Funnything was they were all warpped hahahahaaha.

So I go a brain storm......I purcahsed these chrome looking floor mats that look like the mess metal type. I cut them out and glued them to the dash. It will not intefer with the deployment of the bags because it is the cover only. It looks like shiny metal but is soft and I think looks really unusual. Just an idea if you have run out of otpions like I did.

Question answered. Covers are now obsolete from holden and can only be found at wreckers. Good luck trying to find one not warped bud
