below is the procedure for removing the air bag, once it is off, its just a matter of removing the electrical connector for the blower motor, and the 5 screws holding it in,Tim




Front Passenger's Airbag Replacement

Removal

  1. Disconnect the battery negative cable and wait at least 3 minutes before beginning work.
  2. Remove the glove box.


  1. Remove the front passenger's airbag connector (A) from the holder (C), then disconnect the connector between the front passenger's airbag 2P ('99 Model) or 4P ('00-03 Models) connector (A) and SRS main harness 2P('99 Model) or 4P ('00-03 Models) connector (B).


  1. Remove the harness clamp (A) and the three mounting nuts (B) from the bracket. Cover the lid and dashboard with a cloth, and pry carefully with a screwdriver to lift the front passenger's airbag (C) out of the dashboard.
NOTE: The airbag lid has pawls on its side which attach it to the dashboard.

Installation


  1. Place the new front passenger's airbag (A) into the dashboard. Tighten the front passenger's airbag mounting nuts (B), and install the harness clamp (C).


  1. Connect the front passenger's airbag 2P ('99 Model) or 4P ('00-03 Models) connector (A) to the SRS main harness 2P ('99 Model) or 4P ('00-03 Models) connector (B).

Attach the front passenger's airbag connector to the connector holder (C), then reinstall the glove box.

  1. Reconnect the battery negative cable.
  2. After installing the airbag, confirm proper system operation: Turn the ignition switch ON (II); the SRS indicator light should come on for about 6 seconds and then go off.
  3. Enter the anti-theft code for the radio, then enter the customer's radio station presets.

thats not nearly as bad as i thought...why are shops quoting me to take out the evaporator and recharge etc? Clearly someone is wrong in this install/removing procedure.

Mechanic for Acura: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 3 years ago
there is no need to remove the evaporator to do this, it is not a hard job,Tim

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
