    Hi All,

    Anyone got access to instructions on how to remove and replace the Side Airbag on an Audi A4 B6 or similiar car?

    Need to replace mine...looks fairly easy but just don't know how much of the seat has to come apart!

    Taa

    Yeah if you could get the guide...

    Have the back off and see the air bag bolted in, so release those two bolts and try and unfeed the wiring harness...

    Wiring mod already done properly with VW spec stuff....so next step is bag itself....

    The bag has the right connectors on direct to the floor so will test it first just connected to the floor plug before taking old one out incase it's not that at fault....
