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...
