    I realise that one of those was a Gen 3 (the one with multi photos) and I've deleted it.

    Check these sites out, you might be able to snip what you want (there are 4 below - 2 links, and 2 with pictures):

    Looks like a small airbag comes out around the head rest bottom area.

    No, it's from the side of the actual seat. If you buy seat covers, they'll have side splits to allow the airbag to deploy. I'm not sure if this is a Prius, but this is the general idea:

    The Gen 4 - but not very easy to see - from TOYOTA UK website

    AND - this is a Gen 3

    Yes, they protect the torso and shoulder. It's the curtain airbags which protect the head in conjunction with the front airbags. The Prius Manual doesn't have a good illustration, but this is my previous car - there was a tag on the seat to mark where it was centred., but the Prius seat doesn't:

    Below are a couple of illustrations of a FORD side impact - you can see the 2 different AIRBAGS - the small one near the patient's arm, the large curtain one near his head.

    I guess I can still put something on the bottom seat and maybe a pad where the lumbar is.
