1995 dodge stratus airbag replacement
Posted 05 October 2006 - 07:16 PM
I already have the drivers side air bag and also the passangers side one as well i have the air bag control mod i was just wondering on the install of the bags and other parts that i need to install these bags. I would love it if someone had a service manuall handy so i can look at it. And it would be better if someone had it online.

I can't vouch for the driver's side airbag - I've never messed with it. I'd presume that replacing it would have something to do with the screwholes in the back of the steering wheel.
As for the passenger airbag it's like 4 really long screws that you have to take out that are accessible only from inside the glovebox (release the catch hooks on the sides so that the glove box spills of all its contents onto the passenger-side floor).
When you're re-installing the airbags be sure your battery is disconnected and maybe even have the airbag control module disconnected as well (under the front center consol).
Good luck with it. Someone help me out with the driver's side airbag. I don't really know what I'm talking about with that one.

REMOVAL (use this in opposite to install cept remember to disable the system first)
Disconnect the negative battery cable from the ground stud on the left shock tower....wait 2 minutes to make sure the back up system turns off 2
open glove box,xqueeze the side-walls in and hing the glove box door all the way down
remove the four nuts securing the airbag to the top of the instrument panel
remove the two screws securing the airbag to the support structure
lift the airbag module up and disconnect module electrical connector and remove the airbag module
WARNING: carry the airbag with the trim cover side facing AWAY from your body to minimize injury if the airbag accidentally deploys.
remove instrument cluster hood
remove knee bolster
remove two screws from the lower steering column cover and separate the covers
ensure that the electrical connector is joined securely. tighten screws and nuts.
turn ignition switch to the off position then turn it to the on position. The airbag light should stay on 6-8 seconds then goes out indicating the airba system is functioning properly. If the lamp fails to light, blinks on and off or stays on, there is a malfunction in the system. If any of these conditions exist, the vehicle should be diagrnoes by a dealer service or repair shop....hope that helps
