*do this at your own risk. Unhook battery before messing with airbag components.
Drivers bag is easy, there's a small cover on the botton of the steering wheel with a connector you need to unhook. The bag is just held in by two Torx bits, one on either side of the bag.
The passenger bag will require you to remove the upper dash, find a copy of the SM for directions on this. After the dash is off, it's held on by a few 10mm nuts, same deal, a yellow connector needs to be unhooked.
The seatbelts are relatively easy, put the seats all the way forward in the front, remove the plastic kick plates from the entry ways on the floor (rear just pops out, front has a screw under a cover near the trunk lock on the floor). Remove your door seals (the ones on the body, they just yank off). Use picks to carefully pop off the little plastic covers above where the seat belt is secured toward the ceiling. There's a 12 or 14mm bolt holding it on, also remove the bolts holding the belts to the seat. Then yank the cover off that cover the belt assembly. Again undo the yellow connector. There's a 10mm and a 12 or 14. Reverse to reinstall.
The module in the center console can be removed by, remove the cover around the shifter assembly, then undo the screws for the coin tray and unplug the power socket and little light bulb. Then yank out the other tray above that. You will also need to remove the two small covers and the very front of the center console on the floor almost under the dash. You will see a small air duct elbow, just pull them out. The module of held in by four Torx, and had three big connectors, reverse to reinstall.
Leave the battery unhooked when servicing airbag stuff.
Also you may have to do a manual code reset using a paper clip after everything has been replaced ( this allows it to relearn the passenger seat weight sensor).
hi I had the same thing happen to me I let a friend drive my 04 tsx and he tapped a car in front of him and the airbags deployed no damage to the front end at all but the 2 front air bags deployed. The other air bags and seat belts are still fine but I want to replace the 2 front air bags and I bought a new airbag control unit. But my question is do I have to replace the crash sensors in the front of the car or will they be fine because they weren’t damaged.
Before starting a new post, anyone have experience with only the passenger airbag going off, in a primarily front right collision?
I would think both airbags would typically deploy in any front end collision?
Collision wasn't really major.
So I decided to do a refresh on my tsx and replace the shocks and struts and lower control arms(they are cracked). The shocks and struts I got off no problem but the lower control arms are really kicking my ass. On the passenger LCA, the front joint where it connects to the frame, the bolt will...
One owner car with 150K miles (not our family primary vehicle) needed new tires. So I take it to a reliable tire and alignment shop and had a set of good but not expensive tires put on. Since the front drivers tire on inside had worn down to the fabric plies on inside, I asked for an alignment...
There is a switch between the map lights that says "Door" and "Off," where you set it to Door so your lights come on when you open the doors. It isn't working, unfortunately. I removed it today to see if the switch was dirty, and hit it with some contact cleaner. No change--still doesn't...
I'm not sure I'm posting correctly so please guide me if this is not the right place.
I recently had my clutch replaced for the second time. My first replace was the Exedy lightweight flywheel kit which I did not like so I replaced it with the Exedy stock replacement. So much better...
I was stuck on the freeway due to a massive wreck a couple days ago with temps near 90F and the AC on full blast. I happened to look down after about 30min of not moving and noticed that my temperature gauge was pointed right at H. The yellow light was -not- on, and there was no other warnings...
