Watch OUT - Airbag exploding!!!
A couple of people have recently made quiet inquiries to
the list asking about steering wheel removal/replacement/
fixes etc. To which they have received some dire warnings
from some Chicken-Little types quothing how these innocents
will probably get their hands/heads blown off, taking half a city
block with them ... etc, etc.
Come on guys ... get a grip. I agree that basic precautions
should be taken, but you go a bit far with your quotes of
"pyrotechnics" (after all I, and I'd hazard many others, enjoy
setting off "pyrotechnic" fireworks). If airbags were THAT
unstable, I wouldn't even get behind the wheel! These things
are designed not to be eggshell fragile. Many folks on the list
would think nothing of fixing fuel tanks/hoses/pumps which
are probably more unstable and certainly contain much more
Now just a moment while I put on my armored Nomex suit
before I go remove my Audi (mandatory) horn pad and then
read the responses to this!
