Hi Pearl: Does my Ford Laser 1.6 (5 door Hatch) 2002, need to have airbags replaced? John

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Laser?

~ 2001, we think.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Laser yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing. We're hearing about airbags and don't know if ours needs to be replaced.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks

Yes over the years many makes and models have had safety related recalls and or campaigns. If yours is one of them usually the dealers send out info to the owner of that effected vehicle or if you suspect any such item you can contact the dealer and ask if yours is indeed effected , they will ask for the production date make and model along with serial # Now on the same token if your vehicle is effected it most likely be covered under the safety act for free service to fix it. Hope this explains your question for you.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
