handa-accessories.com says you can't use the Seat Covers if you have front side airbags. I'm not quite sure where the airbags are installed because we haven't received the Element we ordered yet. But I would assume it has something to do with where they eject from if in a crash.

So: Is it just the factory seat covers or ALL seat covers that would interfere with front side airbags?

Reading a little bit more, it appears there is an electronic sensor, I guess sort of an "eye" that detects whether a child is seated correctly in the front seat to avoid injuring them with the front side airbags.

And I can only assume that this "eye" would be covered up by the seat covers. So is it simply a matter of cutting a hole for the sensor to see through if seat covers are installed?

Or is there another reason?

I guess I'll wait for the initial replies before I try any more to figure this one out! :)
