2009 bmw x6 :collision deployed passenger airbag on dashboard. Can i replace the airbag without changing/replacing the dasboard?

the dash pad -upper section to windshield shouldnt have to be unless damaged by deployment the other 3 sections -airbag location the part in line with the ducting and the knee area usually are damaged during deployment and unless you have been trained ir have working knowledge if the air bag system would have a certified trusted auto body shop survey the damage and advise if any under dash damage is present --they can also show a dash break down diagram as well as correctly installing replacement airbag

My passenger side airbag deployed on my 1995 Camry. I can't get the dash cover to close. Any suggestions?

Need to take to manufacturer/dealer and/or a private company to have the airbag replaced. Otherwise you need to cut the airbag out and replace the panel on the airbag (unsafe)

If I replace the airbags in my 2001 Dodge Stratus SE Coupe can they be from a junk yard? If not can I just replace the driver one? If I choose not to replace them will that be dumb? Just wondering.

intact and never used air bags can be used from the same make of vehicle from the junk yard
if they have never been deployed then get the entire dash with the air bags
replace the steering wheel center as well from the junk yard
not having them is really not a good idea as a smashed head is not an option if you or your passenger want to survive
unfortunately it has been reported here that cars have been stolen for the express purpose of un-deployed air bags and that would make the price from the junk yards close to service dealer parts price
the replacement of the air bags and any damaged dash should be covered in the insurance to fix the car

Re: 1994 Dodge Intrepid ES. The upholstery on the passenger-side airbag cover on the dash is severely sun damaged; the edges are curling up and it had wrinkles in it. How can it be repaired, and will it...

it wont cause the airbag to deploy no but to have it fixed you will need to see an upholsterer, the material has shrunk due to the heat and theres no easy fix, he will be able to just remove that section and reupholster it so it wont be to costly.

2000 Ford Escort SE repair costs?

If you turn it into insurance this vehicle could be totaled out. Aribags are not cheap. You also have to replace the sensors and module, as they are NOT reusable. The passenger airbag could be part of the entire dash cover, Windshields I have seen as low as 120 installed. Theo., you could have 600-1000 tied up in doing it yourself. Fyi I hit a deer , did not hurt my winshield or airbags. Cost 2500 to repair.

I am buying a volvo which originally had an airbag, but where the steering wheel was replaced with one which does not have an air bag. The car is a 1991 Volvo 740, and it doesn't have ABS so I was hoping...

It's unlawful to replace a deployed airbag with one not designed for the vehicle in some states. It's also unlawful to disable the airbag which by virtue of not replacing the airbag after it has been deployed. This car sounds like a headache waiting to happen. One has to wonder what kind of collision the car was involved in to make the previous airbag deploy. At the very least, verify the DMV and car safety laws where you live prior to making the purchase and if you're still intent on buying the car, you should get a CARFAX report first. I do wish you well and the best of luck. Greg

My airbags blew i need to replace them

You need to replace your "airbag diagnostic monitor", and the "airbag sensors" as well as the airbags.

Once your airbags have been deployed, the airbag sensors may be damaged and may cause deployment for no appearant reason. You must replace the airbag diagnostic monitor, because it's internal thermal fuse blows upon deployment, and will not deploy a new airbag.

If you purchase airbags, and related parts from a salvage yard, make sure the diagnostic monitor is the same model as the one in your vehicle (the model number is on top of the unit, the manufacturing date is listed last and is irrellevant), but ford does use the same unit in most vehicles of the same year.

To replace the system, disconnect your negative battery cable and wait 1 minute before doing anything. Your airbag system is designed to be able to deploy for 1 minute after a power failure, so do wait 1 minute before doing anything.

In a 1995, your airbag diagnostic monitor is located inside the vehicle, center console area, under the heater and blower control assembly. It is a silver box that has 2 wire clips connected to it, and is retained with a couple 10mm bolts. (Don't get it confused with the larger computer that is under the radio area, the monitor is behind the computer)

Your 2 sensors are located in the front of the grill area, and 1 is in the driver wheel well area. All are held in by a few bolts, and have a long wire clip attached.

The driver airbag is held in by 2 bolts that are easily accessed on the back of the steering wheel, then a couple wire clips inside the steering wheel.

The passenger airbag is held in by 4 bolts that are accessed, by removing the glove compartment, and a wire clip behind the airbag in the dash area.

Airbags blow with extreme power and can be as dangerous as helpful. If you intend on doing the work yourself, follow the instructions carefully.


I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
