Anyone familiar with how to get the airbag clips off? Me and my Toyota mechanic friend tried for about an hour yesterday but he was afraid he was going to break the airbag itself trying to get it removed. Watched videos and everything, still no luck.
I’d like to get it replaced before the trip to pa pulling a trailer. Always comforting to have airbags on a 500 mile trip lol
Hit me up if you’ve done it before and can help me. Leaving Wednesday or Thursday, so time is ticking!
Basically the first step of pulling the airbag off. There are three clips that you apparently need some 90 degree angle tool to pry out or release. My buddy even tried making his own out of a wire handle but just couldn’t figure out how to release them. Unfortunately he was doing most of the work so I don’t have a lot of detail, nor is it an area you can really see into (behind the steering wheel, but in front of the dash). We were trying to use a phone camera and flashlight to look into the space to see what we were doing.
Is this on your JK Rubi or another vehicle. I do know that there is a slot at the tabs on jeeps for a screw driver blade to press the clock spring locking tabs back to release the clock spring. I can look at it on Tuesday depending the area you are in. Keep in mind I don’t like touching the bags at all I had 2 dislocated thumbs from a Grand Marquis’ air bag going off.
