Re: 5ktq/200tq parts for sale
>Steering wheel w/airbag
Please mention to him that I do not think it is wise to resell airbag
units, particularly ones from wrecked cars. It is also illegal to ship
them(they are classified as explosive devices, and thus not carriable by
UPS, USPS, Fedex, and just about every other package company. Some will,
if you pay big $$$, specially package it, and sign all sorts of forms.)
Then, there's the issue of damage in shipment. Airbag Generator Units(as
the airbag explosive device is called, because it explosively generates a
gas) require very special handling. The Bently specifies no sudden drops, a
certain orientation when placed on a workbench, so on etc.
I would strongly encourage listers to never, ever buy an airbag
component(particularly the airbag itself), used. Not something to be toyed
with. They should be taken to the dealer(if already removed.) If it's in
a car, let a qualified mechanic(or the dealer) remove it. This is -NOT- a
DIY component, folks!

you mean "turbo" panel, not "quattro" panel. All type-44 non-turbos had a
black middle panel, all turbos had red/orange panels.
