What happens when the airbag deploys??? It looks like there is an airbag compartment above it... Is there any concern about the IOpener compartment flying apart are being torn off and pushed into the seat or passenger in front of the airbag?
Good questions. Depending on how he secured it, I could see one of two things happening.
1st. The airbag deploys and rips the io out of it's mount, which then smashes into the passenger's shins.
2nd. The airbag deploys, with the io in a non-breakaway mount. The airbag destroys the windshield, crunches into the io, and partially deploys. The passenger gets partial protection, but not enough to prevent impact on the edge of the now pushed-forward io.
Can the io be lowered a few inches, or would that make it impossible to use?
