Question about 1996 Audi A4
Hi! I have a 1996 Audi A4 Quattro 2.8 v6 that both airbags went off in. I have just purchased both new airbags for passenger side and drivers. Also have purchased a new modual. I would be intrested in knowing how to install the new ones in the correct procedure so that I dont end with with a big bang theroy if you know what I mean. Thanks
The main thing with dealing with airbags is to ground yourself before plugging them in. Any electronics shop can sell you an ESD (electrostatic discharge) wrist strap and ground cord for a few dollars. Use this to ground yourself securely to the frame of the car. This gives a pathway for static electricity in your body to discharge into the car, rather than into the airbag connector, potentially blowing the airbags. All the same, whenever possible, don't sit in front of the bag you're installing in case something goes wrong and it does blow.
