Magnesium Passenger Air Bag Housing for Chrysler Mini-van 970329

Passenger air bag mounting (PAB) and packaging have been a concern for the Automotive Industry for the last several years. The newer designs of instrument panels are sleeker, smaller and more like fighter plane cock pits. The tighter package size and convoluted instrument panel surfaces require better dimensional control of the air bag mounting locations. The fit and finish of the air bag door is influenced by the position of the air bag housing. The magnesium die cast housing used for the 1996 Chrysler Minivan is one of the keys to the successful seamless passenger door and sweeping I/P surface.
