SOURCE: Need instructions on replacing airbags for 07 Chevy Cobalt.

If you are replacing air bags that means that they have been deployed. If they have been deployed then the body shop that has the car should be repairing this along with the other damage. This job should be left to a professional because they are very dangerous when handled improperly

The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.

SOURCE: need to install airbags. direction on how to

Hello! The removal and installation of an Air Bag is a multiple step process that exceeds our ability to send these procedures via a comment...I would suggest that you purchase a repair manual ( I believe AutoZone sells them for $15)...Also, due to safety issues, It would be best using the manual...

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

How do I get the airbag light to shut off on the dashboard?


You take it an have DTC'S checked in the air bag control module . Have it fixed ,then the light will go out . Your best bet is take it to a ASE certified repair shop . You wouldn't want to have an unintended airbag deployment . People have been killed from not knowing what they were doing an setting off an airbag !

Hit a deer and airbags deployed; some front end damage to vehicle; what do I need to do to replace airbags and get them functioning again? (especially with regards to airbag sensor)


the air bags are very costlly, like around 2,000-4,000 eachwith out labor. the sensors are a few hundred also. when you replace the air bags you should replace all of the sensors. very expensive. for that kind of money you could almost get a new van. using junk yard air bags i don't suggest. to risky.

2004 pacifica impact sensors, airbags


you may not always have to replace sensors, but you will have to change the airbag module (usually under front seat, sometimes in middle of dash) To remove the passenger airbag you have to take out the dash.

Broken Horn won't *******- 2003 Chevrolet Malibu


Hi. If your airbag has not deployed, you don't have to replace it. The airbag may have to be removed to get at the horn circuit. Try taking it to an independent auto repair place. I'll be willing to bet that they'll give you a better price for the repair. Good luck! ricardok45
