Re: air bag removal

first thing you have to do is disconnect the battery for a good 15-20 mins, that should make sure its dead and nothing can go off, once the 4 bolts are off theres a little green (i think) connector with a bit in the middle (again i think) that you pull out before you can remove the plug its self.

remember its basicly a bomb, so be carfull.

Re: air bag removal

all the cento airbags ive seen are mechanical. use a pin to move the leaver then twist the unit around. once you turn it the airbag is disabled.
