The way to Replace and repair Car Air Bags

If there is something wrong with your car air bags how to do?

The way to replace the car air bag:

-Remove the negative cable from your car battery before replacing car air bags. Not removing the negative cable could deploy the replacement air bag, causing injury.

Deactivate the air bag by removing the air bag fuses. Look in your car owners manual to locate the fuses.

Unscrew steering column paneling and remove the airbag bolts on the back side of the steering wheel. Pull out the airbag until you see the back side and unplug the wires.

Plug the new airbag into the wires and rebolt it back onto the steering wheel. Replace the car steering column panels.

Replace passenger side air bags through the glove box or main dash panels. Remove the glove box by taking off the glove box straps and undoing the hinges. Unplug and unbolt the airbag, slide it out the front of the dash, slide the new air bag in and rewire and rebolt it.

Put the glove box or dash panels back together. Reconnect the fuses in the fuse panel and the negative cable on the car battery and you’re finished.

The way to repair the car air bag:

Whether you rebuild vehicles for a living or are a do-it-your-selfer we can help you replace your airbag parts. As vehicles age, buying replacement airbags from a dealer is no longer a viable option. For most car and truck owners the cost is much to high to invest in an older vehicle. To avoid expensive airbag replacements some repair shops have turned to recycling yards. However, dismantlers often damage the airbags during the removal and storage process. Furthermore, they mis-characterize the parts and often make mistakes identifying the right components. But worst of all, recycling yard personnel have no training or time to identify water and fire damaged airbags. If these airbags are reintroduced into safety system they can become a potential hazard for the unaware vehicle owner.
