    Question How to turn the front passenger airbag off? help needed

    Can anyone tell me if the front passenger airbag can be switched off on a pre facelift 8L?
    I had a look in the glovebox as i thought it could be turned off using the key but cant seem to find anything at all
    Did the pre facelift come with the option of being able to switch it off?
    Any ideas?

    Not sure about the pre, but I know mine has an airbag key in the top right corner of the glove box...

    Have a look in the owners manual mate. I have a facelift version and it shows you in there so i'd have thought that if it doesn't tell you in your manual then you probably cant do it.

    You can't switch it off manually on a prefacelift car I'm afraid.

    Mine too, there's an orange warning saying 'Passenger Air Bag Off' on the interior light when you switch it off.
