Question about 2000 Chevrolet Malibu
I have a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS. In February of 2008 I was in an accident and my airbags deployed. I have a set of replacement airbags and the computer module. I'm planning on doing the replacement work this weekend. (5/16/2009-5/17/02009) I am not 100% sure where the airbag computer module is located. Also I have the Chilton Repair Manual and it shows how to replace the driver's airbag but not the passenger airbag. Is there anyone who knows where the Computer module is located and how to take out the deployed passenger airbag?
The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.
