Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
If you are replacing air bags that means that they have been deployed. If they have been deployed then the body shop that has the car should be repairing this along with the other damage. This job should be left to a professional because they are very dangerous when handled improperly

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.

Hello! The removal and installation of an Air Bag is a multiple step process that exceeds our ability to send these procedures via a comment...I would suggest that you purchase a repair manual ( I believe AutoZone sells them for $15)...Also, due to safety issues, It would be best using the manual...
