Re: Airbag recall questions


I don't know how similar the recall is on our cars, I have a '90 Coupe q.

When I picked my car up from the recall work, the mechanic told me he
removed a couple relays from underneath the rear seat. Apperantly the module
he installed in the dash replaced the relays.

I think the only reason he told me about this was because I had some wiring
for the stereo underneath there and he didn't want me to worry when I saw
the missing pieces.

Sounds like you may be in a similar situation.
