Air bag replacement

I hit a deer and the air bag deployed. The dealers want $1000+ to replace it. What risks are there in buying a used one from the junk yard. I believe I just need to undo two screws on each side of the steering column after disconnecting the battery. What else would be involved?

You may also need a center sensor assem. it is the brain for the airbag and should only be used once however it is your risk

There is something called a clock spring that is to be replaced and time an air bag is deployed. The main risk is an unexpected deployment while installing a new one. This can kill you!!! You must disconnect the battery(both terminals) and wait 30 min for backup power in the control module to go away. then be careful not to create static while handling the bag. Always hold it so it faces away from you if it where to deploy. There is a yellow conector on the back side and two screws to remove and replace the bag. The clock spring requires pulling the steering wheel. I believe you can rent steering wheel pullers.the clock spring just has screws and a connector. this is not rocket science it is done daily in body shops just follow the precautions and you will be fine

Air bag light on for ford 2001 suddenly


Be careful. You do not want the air bag to deploy on you suddenly. Check the air bag fuse on the vehical, it may need to be replaced. If your air bags have been deployed recently, the lights do not turn off until the dealer turns them off for you.

Hit a deer head on square in center of front end at 45mph my air bags did not deploy


Airbags are designed to keeo you from hitting the windshield or steering wheel. If you were not injured in the colision the I would say that the airbag was not needed and the system work the way it was designed.

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

Hit a deer and airbags deployed; some front end damage to vehicle; what do I need to do to replace airbags and get them functioning again? (especially with regards to airbag sensor)


the air bags are very costlly, like around 2,000-4,000 eachwith out labor. the sensors are a few hundred also. when you replace the air bags you should replace all of the sensors. very expensive. for that kind of money you could almost get a new van. using junk yard air bags i don't suggest. to risky.

Something is wrong with the SRS. This is not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional for repair. They will reset the light after repairing it. Otherwise the air bag may not deploy in an accident or may deploy at any moment. Don't take the risk. Get this fixed
