They just unbolt them from the back of the bag. You will also need to replace the Airbag diagnostic monitor module under the dash, it is a one time use module.

SOURCE: Fog Light Replacement Hyundai Santa Fe

The above statement is GREAT!!! The wheel-well piece folds down across the area you need to be in. There are 2 screws to undo this part. Push it back and there is a cap that unscrews which holds the wires and socket he is talking about. Unscrew the cap, unscrew the wire and housing. The bulb comes out. You pull the wire harness off and install the new bulb. It has a triangular push-in and it has to go just right so take note of how it comes out. Also, being a halogen light bulb, do not touch the bulb with your hands - the oils will make it explode.

SOURCE: 2004 pacifica impact sensors, airbags

you may not always have to replace sensors, but you will have to change the airbag module (usually under front seat, sometimes in middle of dash) To remove the passenger airbag you have to take out the dash.

First disconnect your battery and wait at least 1 minute to disable your airbag system. Next, remove your glove compartment and you will then see the retaining bolts for the airbag.

Why does airbag light stay on my audi a4


there is a fault code stored (typically impact sensor malf). Have the computer scanned for this code. Autozone does it for free (except in California), or bring it to your local shop.

The airbag light in my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe light is on but has never been deployed. At first it flashed on and off but now it stays on. Do you have any ideas to what the problem is?


It may just be a bad seat belt buckle, the switch breaks but is inside the buckle and you would need to replace the buckle, the coorect way to know for sure is to have the airbag computer scanned and there will be stored codes, the code will tell you what part of the system is failing or failed,hope this helps.

2002 hyundai santa fe , what is an open recall, 0pen recall# 089 91b024r3 .9


There is NO open recall on the Santa Fe, However, there is one on the 1999-2004 SONATA (EF) and 2001-2004 XG300/XG350 (XG) vehicles that are registered and operated in specified “salt belt” states may exhibit corrosion damage to the subframe assembly. If specified levels of corrosion damage have occurred as described in this bulletin, replace the front subframe with a new subframe that incorporates additional holes in the upper and lower panels. If a front subframe does not require replacement, add drainage holes and treat the subframe with rust-proofing material.

There is a sensor under the seat cushion that is basically a weight sensor, if a certain weight is not sensed then the airbag is turned off, it must be defective.
