What's in a door airbag?

What's inside a pasenger door airbag? I cannot find anything in the parts CD. I swear there is a rattle that almost sounds like shaking a can of spray paint. Is there anything in the airbag that can cause that? An actuator of some sort?

My last warranty visit is in two weeks. If I don't find the source now, I'm stuck with it!

Thanks!

Take the car into the dealer and mention the noise. Make sure it gets documented well in the work order. That way, you can still be covered for that issue once the warranty is up.

Thanks! I'm taking the car in this Monday, so any information you can get me before then would be appreciated.
