Maintenance Guides / How to gain access to the side airbag
« on: 04 January 2008, 13:31:02 »
PLEASE NOTE - ANY WORK DONE ON AIRBAGS - DISCONNECT THE CAR BATTERY FIRST AND WAIT FOR 15 MINUTES BEFORE CARRYING-OUT ANY WORK

The minifacelift (97/98-00) and facelift (00/01-03) are fitted with side airbags as standard, you can gain access to the mechanism by removing the back of the front seat. I do not recommend that you fiddle around with air bags as there are strict safety procedures to follow before doing so, but I am merely pointing-out how to gain access to the inside of the front seat.

This is quite straightforward actually, there are two Torx 15 screws at each corner under the seat, and once undone (using a chubby screw driver) the seat back cover simply slides downwards and can them be removed.

The only difficult bit really is to know where the two screws are, and to work out that they are Torx 15, because it is not easy to access the underside of the seat when it is in place, but now you know...

On reassembly, observe the relevant torque settings as detailed in Marks DTM guide:

Maintenance Guides / V6 Plenum removal - addendum for 2.6 & 3.2
« on: 10 April 2007, 15:02:56 »
Plenum removal may be required for several reasons, such as camcover gaskets replacing, cambelt replacement or cam timing.

The guide describing the plenum removal can be found here:

Removing V6 plenum
http://www.omegaowners.com/forum/index.php?topic=90657.0

Essentially the plenum removal instructions for the 2.5 & 3.0 engines are still valid, but the newer 2.6 & 3.2 engines are slightly easier to work on due to the fact that there are fewer components to remove, e.g. no ICV, EGR, or HT leads.

If you have one of the newer engines, you might find it easier to follow the instructions below for plenum removal and then proceed with the 2.5 & 3.0 guides for the operation you intend to carry out:

Maintenance Guides / Re: Front wheel bearing change - all models

Note:

The description above concentrates on the wheel bearing change and only briefly mentions the removal and refitting of the brake pads, calliper, and discs - these operations are all covered separately in TheBoy's Front Disc Change maintenance guide, see: http://www.omegaowners.com/forum/index.php?topic=90538.0
