    Default Airbag deployed

    I was driving last night hit a freaking pothole and my airbag went off. Now I need help removing it until I can get a new one. Does anyone know how that's done?

    Default There are two torx screws on the back side

    Torx T27 I believe. Unscrew those and the bag will come free from the steering wheel. Then unplug the orange connector.

    Same thing happened to my mom a year and a half ago. Except it wasn't a pothole the road was just really torn up and bumpy. Airbag went off and broke her nose. Had to get surgery and everything. Glad you're OK!

    Yes it did the damm thing hit my hand. I really find it hard to believe that these things help. It hit my hand and it truly felt like someone hit my hand with a hammer. Two days have passed and my hand is still swollen.
