Driver Airbags

Normally the driver side airbag is folded into the center part of the steering wheel and is stored inside the steering wheel cover. When a collision occurs, the airbag breaks through the tear-seam (an indented line partition) on the back side of the steering wheel cover as it inflates to protect the driver.
