Is there anyone repaint your air-bag by yourself?
It looks like dirty because of black dots on it, not very good when look at it.
Can we use marker to paint it? Or better not, because it is air-bag.

Hi mirabear,

Not sure which air bag you have problems with, but I am sure some marker pen will be fine.

Paint may be a problem, depends on which paint and how much paint you intend to use.

Cleaning with a non abrasive and solvent-free cleaner is good too.

Its the air bag cover that gets dirty or worn. This is quite thick in material and protects the actual air bag itself very well from some marker pen, spilt coffee, knocks and bumps.

Some "before and after" pictures would be nice if you do go ahead with the refurbishment.

Hi Arfur Dent,
Thanks for your reply,
It is the passenger seat air-bag, I attached a picture.
I think it is paint out. Maybe I will try to find if there is any marker with the same color for it.
Thanks again
