Dumb question...

Just out of curiousity... where exactly do the side airbags come out from ? I don't see any lining or cover on the seat or door sill that would indicate this.

that's exactly my question. If they come out of the seat, I don't see no lining or cover to show where. Does it just rip right through the leather!?!?

I would guess (and it's only a guess) that the seam on the side of the seatback is designed to split open when the side airbag inflates. Maybe?

The side bolster of the seat is probably vinyl, and not leather. The seating surfaces are leather. My guess, and it's only a guess from seeing where the airbag is mounted in the lower, fat part of the seat back side section, is that the section in the seatback, under that hard plastic, is velcro'ed together, and that "seam" gets blown open from the airbag.

Check the side of your front seats. The airbag comes out of the seam where the tag is. The seam splits open as the airbag deploys.

I guess we'll have to wait for someone to get into an accident to see if the seams indeed split open.

Acutally, the side airbags are a little bigger than that as the next picture shows...

Disturbing Kemosabe. Funny, but disturbing nonetheless.:2:

So in the case of a deployment, are insurance companies saddled with the expense of replacing the entire leather seat cover or what? That might explain in part why my insurance cost rose more than I'd hoped when I replaced my 01 CR-V with the 03 Pilot.

I would think that cost of replacing the seat cover would be minor in comparison to all of the other damage that would be sustained in the event of a collision serious enough to deploy it. And isn't your safety worth the cost of a seat cover? Besides - in a collision that serious, the driver's natural bodily reaction might necessitate a seat cover replacement anyway :D (or at least a really good cleaning);)
