    Default Airbag help

    Hi all, I am told that a module for the Airbag needs to be replaced (long story!). It is supposed to be under the steering wheel cowelling. Anybody know what is looks like or exactly where under the cowling it is?
    I cannot seem to find anything on EPC or Tis refering to it. If someone has a part number I could look it up. If this does exist can I remove it and the car would still run without it?

    My airbag light is always on and someone tech II'd it and told me it was faulty. They were in a bit of a rush and did not explain in depth were I would find it.

    The module in the column is the CIM, but has nothing to do with the airbag. The airbag control unit is under the centre console i.e. around where the handbrake is.

    Why does it need replaced? I'm assuming the airbag has been activated?, as pre 2003.5 models need the airbag control unit replaced if an airbag has been activated.

    As for the car running without it, not sure.

    Part number depends on what range your chassis number (VIN) falls into, and what ident (two letter code) is on the existing module. If you're planning on replacing this yourself, then you really need to get the ident code off the existing unit.

    Oh, and sit down before they tell you the price of it!!

    You'll also need a good bit of Tech 2 done to it as well, so it kinda makes it outside the realms of being a DIY job.
