adaptive airbag

Can someone tell me how to make an adaptive airbag (part or assy??).


I've never been able to make adaptivity work correctly in kinematic applications, except with cables, but they break all the time and the model does strange things.


Right now, I need to make an airbag adaptive, so when the control arm/axle goes up and down, the airbag gets longer or shorter:

1. top plate constrained to frame rail

2. bottom plate swings off-plane (in 3d space at strange angle)

3. rubber airbag attaches to both plates


I tried to make a part, but that didn't work.


I tried to make an adaptive assembly, but that didn't work.


i just can't get this to work.


Any advice I appreciate ....
