SOURCE: Need to Install A Passenger Airbag in Hyundai Accent 2002

on the 2002 Accent we have, the area is clearly identified w/the "cutout" area and marked SRS Airbag...perhaps look at Hyundai.com at the owners' manual online, or look at used cars/junk yards to compare dash panels to yours...would think it VERY difficult for avg person to perform this task

Unfortunately, you can do it, but you will have to remove your entire dash in the process.  It's not really difficult, just time consuming.  You can remove the front dash cover by opening the doors and removing the covers on each side.  They are just clips that hold them on.  Take a flat screwdriver and carefully pry them off. You will then see screws on the side that you will need to unbolt, and I believe there are 2 more screws pointed upwards that you can get to if you open your glovebox.  After those screws are removed, remove the defroster grill in the middle of your dash.  There is just one screw to remove and it unclips.  Now you can pry the entire top part of the dashboard off.  There are more clips holding it on, so just be careful when you do it. After that, you will see a bunch of screws on the top side that you can unbolt and then you will be able to remove the front cover that sits behind your steering wheel. With these pieces out of the way, you can finally unbolt the front cover where your stereo is and get at whatever your trying to get at to fix your defroster/control knob.  
I had to go through all this when I installed my aftermarket stereo.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: trying to replace airbag on ford mustang 2001 base

drivers2_bing.gif air bag is simple...
on the side of the steering wheel you will find two little circles/plugs that need to be removed. once removed there will be two little bolts, possibly torx. once removed the air bag is unplugged and removed

passenger side is a little more difficult and there are 6 bolts, 8mm if I remember correctly.

however, if you are replacing them because of an accident then you will also need to replace the clock spring in addition to the crash sensors

Replacing airbags


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. More car obd2 scanner to maintain car with cheap price.
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.

Was wrecked need to know how to take out the airbag and replace


This process would very depending on each car. Check the fuse box for the airbag fuse. Have it removed before disassembling the airbag assembly. For the driver side airbag... remove the cover of the driver's wheel to gain acces to the assembly. In some cases you will have to remove the cover of the steering columns. For the passenger side airbag you need to remove the dashboard to gain access to the assembly.

We need to replace the fan motor on a 1997 cavalier- what is the easiest way?


If it is the heater fan motor, I believe on that you have to actually remove the dash to gain access. Remove the speaker grill on top and there are a few torx screws under that. Remove the side access panels, when you open the car doors you will a panel on each side, they are just held in there by pressure and small nubs on the panels, you will find more torx screws. In the glove box on the top towards the front you will find a few more torx screws, also in that area there are two 10 mm bolts that are somewhat hidden but accessible. After all the bolts and screws are removed you can pull the dash cover off, becareful because on the passenger side, the airbag has a paper type cover on it, you don't want to damage that. From there you should be able to gain access to the heater blower on the passenger side of the vehicle. Good luck.

Honda Accord 2001 LX. Srs lamp still lighting, what I have to check ?


Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.


Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat

(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Trunk leaking water thru vents in the side walls


Easy to fix. Remove trunk liner or peel back on passenger side. Squeeze tabs that hold in the vent housing and push out. You have to loosen the bumper panel over in the wheel well area. This is just two bolts that take a 10 mm wrench and a plastic body clip. Remove vent from outside of car. Take off old gasket and throw away. Clean vent and metal around where vent goes completely with lacquer thinner. Use a product such as Lexel to caulk around where gasket used to be. Be liberal with caulking, it all covers. Reinstall vent and other parts in reverse order. Poblem solved. One hour to do and no special tools required.
