    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Roof lining down, curtain airbags out (VERY CAREFULLY) and the bolts are underneath

    You "might" be able to get to them without completely removing the air bags, but be very careful.

    yes the fixing are in place, but you might have to drill the holes again, as they are blocked cant remember with what.

    when i changed mine it did lift out the airbags, for more easier access.
