About Airbag Clock Spring

The car's airbag system is a crucial part of the car's safety system. The airbag system can mean the difference between survival and serious injury or death in a crash situation.  The airbag system is a seriously clever and complex piece of kit which is made up of various components, including the i10 Hyundai airbag clock spring.

The i10 Hyundai airbag clock spring is a coil which is housed inside a protective casing in which it expands and retracts as the steering wheel of the car turns. Its job is to manage the electrical connection for the parts which make up the driver's airbag, so in order for the airbag system to function properly, it needs the i10 Hyundai airbag clock spring to be in good condition and fully functioning.

Airbags are made out of stretchy material and are housed, compressed tightly, in several areas throughout the car.  Airbags can be placed in all of the doors, on the dashboard, the roof of the car and in all of the seats. Airbags react when there is a crash by filling with air at exceptional speed, creating a pillow which bursts out of the airbag cover or panel it is secured behind and into the car, protecting the people sitting inside the car by cushioning the impact of head or upper body against the interior of the car. The airbag will then deflate afterwards. An airbag needs to spring into action practically as soon as the crash happens. According to studies, an airbag will activate within 55 milliseconds of impact.  You can see why it is imperative that the airbag system is functioning properly and fully, and that an important component such as the i10 Hyundai airbag clock spring is in sound working order for it to be able to respond accurately and do its job properly. Passengers and driver need to be seated properly and wearing seatbelts for the airbags to work properly in a crash and to avoid receiving an injury from the airbags.

If the airbag system warning light illuminates it could mean there is a  faulty airbag or that something is wrong with one of the components of the airbag system, such as the i10 Hyundai airbag clock spring. The i10 Hyundai airbag clock spring will certainly need replacing if the connectors that connect to the driver's airbag have melted causing them to cement directly onto the engine cylinder, which can occur over a period of time.  If this happens or the i10 Hyundai airbag clock spring is faulty in some other way, the whole airbag system is affected. It's advisable to get the i10 Hyundai airbag system checked properly if the warning light shows, to ensure safety is not compromised in any way. Once the airbag system warning light illuminates, the system becomes inactive which means if you have a crash the airbags will not work so it is important to address the problem as soon as possible.

Hyundai trivia

  • All car manufacturers need a big manufacturing plant. The Ulsan plant used by Hyundai is the biggest in the world and covers an astonishing 1,225 acres. It has five completely independent plants and needs around 35,000 workers to function at optimal capacity.
  • The first car produced by Hyundai was the Pony, which was designed with help from international car designers, including Giorgio Giugiaro.
  • Hyundai has a major advantage over other car manufacturers who have to import the steel that they use. Instead, Hyundai can cut production costs because they roll their own steel in South Korea.
  • The Matt Damon film, The Bourne Supremacy, has the action hero not just driving a Hyundai EF Sonata, but also pointing out another. This is despite the fact that Hyundai hadn’t entered into any product placement deals with the filmmakers. The EF Sonata can also be seen in 2005’s War of the Worlds, 2008’s The Hurt Locker, and the 2010 thriller Inception.
  • The Hyundai testing centre is world-class. Based in the Mojave Desert, the area (known as the Proving Ground) is an abandoned airbase. With 4,300 acres of land, cars can be tested so harshly that there are still remains of vehicles scattered around the zone.
