AIR BAG removal Sign In

never have removed an air bag before , it's a 2006 Malibu Max 3.5
there have been other stuff that everyone made to sound really dangerous that i have done that was not. so how dangerous is removing the air bag or air bags in general. i was planning on wearing my usual eye protection and a face shield , maybe not sit in the drivers seat.

Your eye protection won't help you if that thing goes off in you face, in fact they will probably cut you.

The most important thing is to remove all power source to the bag before messing with it. Find the yellow connector for that bag and disconnect it before doing anything.

When you set it down, always do it on the metal side. If it was to go off while sitting on the vinyl side, it would shoot through the air. They have explosive power.
