    I was wondering how the passenger airbag worked as there is no marking on the dash for it to come out from. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I reckon theres a weak spo on the surface that it will burst through.

    Very comforting to go bouncy bouncy bouncy after being smacked by a piece of plastic.
