Genuine Mazda Part
Genuine Mazda DHS control unit. This unit operates the DHS system and will also need replacing along with the bonnet actuators in the event of an accident should they deploy. This only fits the last Mk3.75 Facelift model which is the point at which a European Directive was introduced stating all new cars must have this system fitted.
DHS (Deployable Hood System), is a pedestrian safety feature that reduces the risk of serious injury for pedestrians when involved in a frontal collision. Sensors in the front bumper react in milliseconds when a collision occurs with a pedestrian, deploying the hydraulic actuators under the bonnet to increase the space between the bonnet and the engine. By increasing this critical distance the pedestrian impact will be far less severe. Operating at speeds above 12.4mph, the speed above which pedestrians are most likely to be seriously injured in head on collisions, the system is designed to minimise injury.
Fits all left and right hand drive Mk3.75 facelift models, 2013> from chassis number 350001>
