Hi from Brisbane Australia guys. I'm a recent addition to the world of VW ownership with a new-to-me 03 Caravelle. The headlining was on the droop when I got it, so while sorting that out (I'm a motor trimmer), the idea of customizing the rest of the interior took hold. I have a question about the steering wheel though. On the wheel pictured, where does the airbag break through? I intend on covering the rim of the wheel, but would like to do the horn pad/airbag cover too, just need to know where to place my seams. Can't see any burst points like you usually would.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, the airbag breaks in the middle, by the badge and doesn't rip in a controlled maner...its quite a messy rip ! I have a 4 spoke audi at the garage with deployed airbags i could take some pictures if you wish...

Thanks adamss24, that would be great if you could please. Doesn't sound too promising for me to safely wrap the pad though.

Yep, and don't believe the tosh circulating on the net that old airbags don't deploy, this a6 is a 2001 and airbags deployed perfectly after the chap fell asleep at the wheel and jumped off a small bridge into a ditch...Car took the impact well !
