Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0003899A2] A method of forming a motor vehicle instrument panel with a flexibly tethered air bag deployment door by molding first and second plastics materials is described. Also described is a vehicle passenger compartment console assembly including a console body having an outer shell and an access opening disposed in the console body outer shell, and having at least two storage modules disposed within the shell and sequentially movably supported between one or more concealed positions displaced from the access opening and a displayed position adjacent the access opening. Also described is an automotive headliner assembly which includes a substrate that is configured to mount to a vehicle in a position generally covering a lower surface of a passenger compartment roof. Cavities are integrally formed into the substrate between the upper substrate surface and the lower substrate surface to provide receptacles for electrical wiring, fiber optic cabling, EA foam and the like or to form a duct for directing air flow. Also described is an inflatable restraint assembly comprising a trim panel, an air bag door positioned spanning an air bag deployment opening in the trim panel, a frangible tear seam defining at least a portion of the air bag door, and a hard plastic collar is attached to the trim panel, wherein the air bag door is integrally formed with the hard plastic collar.
