    I have changed both front airbags and also seat belt tighteners. And of course airbag unit (SRS). Then tech 2 treatment. Thats all folks.

    for the seat airbag you need to remove the material off the top part of the seat by pulling out the little metal rings dotted around the seat holding the material to the foam just enough to l et you at the foam around the airbag push the foam away so you can see the bolts holding the airbag onto the frame of the seat remove those and put new bag in dont forget to reconnect the electric cable into the new bag them just redo the metal rings back on to the foam

    for the roof airbag you would need take off the side trims that run along each inner post ocne you remove them you should be able to move the roof cloth enough to allow you to get at the fixing bolts remove them replace airbag and recconnect electric cable

    hope this helps
