@  Mckinney_Tx : (05 February 2016 - 08:54 PM) hell i aint
@  Dylan214 : (05 February 2016 - 05:27 PM) Yeah its more of the I dont want to lose the info, and not have anyone use the site. Yes FB is great! but when were having huge topics about stuff We can't archive it if its important.
@  borgwarrior : (05 February 2016 - 09:06 AM) but we are still here, no matter what. :)
@  sgtmyers88 : (04 February 2016 - 07:54 PM) Yeah my original intent for the FB page was just to be a check in page to keep in touch if the main sight/firum goes down again.. It kinda evolved on its own from there..
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:25 AM) Hyper, I would love to take "more roll" or even purchase site and make it great/ better then before. This being said I am going to keep that in mind for the app bc I am still learning that. I am a IT Security/Networking guy. I do Websites etc on the sites but mostly Whitehat stuff.
@  Hyper4fx : (04 February 2016 - 09:22 AM) I can agree with you there friend... I could even make a phone app. It can be active forum... but like you said .... With the right People.
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:07 AM) I want to restore the forum and I believe it can be done, But we gotta think, Do we have the right ppl for the job? YEs we do, there def alot of things we could do and etc but it all depends on who wants to grab the bull by the horns and thats me I want to make this site the ALL in one.
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:04 AM) I understand where yalls are coming from, But you dont want to lose the traffic and etc for the Forum. The FB page doesnt allow you to keep backups , no archiving, and no searchability, Now look I understand ppl use fb easier then this forum but I wouldnt just drive all the traffic to that page.
@  Hyper4fx : (04 February 2016 - 09:01 AM) FB will always be more active and responsive then this Forum..... just sayin. The forum is okay for looking up stuff.. But FB is real time interaction... I started a Dodge Stratus FB Tribute page 4 years ago when this forum lost it's momentum. It pretty active with over 1300 users. Then we started up the FB Group.. and I redirected all traffic from the page to the new group.... Your Welcome.
@  Stratuscaster : (03 February 2016 - 10:05 PM) I'd post in both AND in the forums - only way we can get them active again...
@  rustbucketbingo : (02 February 2016 - 10:48 AM) Sweet thanks man.

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.

Seems like kind of a small hit (as far as seeing the damage on the RF of the vehicle) for the airbags to deploy. But then, that cement barrier looks like it took one heck of an impact.

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.

not sure on replacing those but I would pull the fuses, disconnect the battery, anything you can do to be 100% sure they arent going to deploy in your face

If you don't find the answer here soon...I'd check your nearest library. You're paying city taxes for the libraries so ya might as well use them. :yes: They should have the Haynes manual for ya.

this is from the haynes manuel i will type it out for yeah...i know i am a nice guy

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

FYI, when replacing the driver's side air bag, Chrysler says you're supposed to install a new clockspring as well...
