Title: METHOD OF AIRBAG ADAPTATION IN VEHICLE CONVERSION
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the field of automotive engineering, more particularly airbag systems for vehicles. In one form, the invention relates to a method for converting vehicles from left-hand drive to right-hand drive and vice versa, especially adapting the fitting of one or more airbags in such conversions. The invention re-uses the original airbag and its componentry and thus avoids the need for re-certification of the system by vehicle safety authorities as well as simplifying the drive-side change over process.
