Holy old thread, Batman.

Wow. Looks like the original poster never returned after this exchange. Seems like a really nice guy. It's amazing that anyone helped him at all. Funny how he got so hot-headed. Honestly, if someone is asking how to remove airbags or disable any safety item, I'd be wary of answering too. And the guy initially never said anything about replacing the air bags. :roll:

yeh i see where your coming from, but as adults people need to take resposibilty of their own actions, ignorance shouldnt be a reason to not give useful information. yeh they are a safety feature, and yes if a car is fitted with air bags they are supose to be maintained but there are heaps of cars without them. If he wants to take them out thats his problem not mine. I needed to take my girlfriends out because her steering wheel came off, ended up having to do the nut up finger tight and driving it to my old mans house to tighten it coz i didnt have the right socket, keeping in mind i was looking at that nut the whole time to make sure it didnt come undone.

after that the airbag light always stayed on, i was told this was because i drove it with the airbag out so it thought it had gone off.

anywho, sorry for thead digging, i didnt realise how old this thread was when i first posted.

well, he asked how to remove them, not replace them... if he would have first stated that they where blown and he just needed to pull them i would not have said anything about safety, but he didnt and proceeded to let me know how dumb i was for saying anything to him about safety at all. that kind of action is indeed childish.

I've been on car forums where the "dude tude" and "holier than thous" ran me off before I ever joined or posted. The planet is the only place I've ever been on the web where the 'tudes run off because we're basically too CHILL!

Yeah but it is a yugo

The Yugo debuted in the U.S. in the 1980’s with great fanfare, only to disappoint in just about every imaginable way. In fact, a recent book details its ignominious history and goes so far as to label it the worst car in history (see Yugo: The Rise and Fall of the Worst Car in History).

They had electrical problems that caused the cars to catch fire, and while it did not happen often they could do it even while turned off. :lol:

Regardless i saw a Porsche 944 with a similar off road setup which left me like this :o for the next 10 miles down the road

98 and up - passenger airbag

Postby 98HPasSport » Fri Sep 17, 2010 10:27 pm

new here. just got a 98 passport 4wd and need to know how to remove the passenger airbag as well. the cover is broken and just flopping around in the dash, so i need to replace it. i got out all the screws i could reach after dropping down the glovebox but the airbag still won't come out. the shop manual makes it sound easier than it is. looks like the dash has to come out to reach the rest of the screws/bolts? anyone taken the passenger airbag out that can get me some instructions? thanks guys and glad to be part of your forum! :headbang:
