Hello, my name is***** and i will do my best to assist you.I am going over your story now and will reply back soon with some info,thanks!

You are absolutely correct, there is a hole in the airbag, you will need to replace the front air strut,

you can find reasonably prices ones at

that is where most people buy their struts and compressors from, hope this helps.

a fuse or wiring or sensor will NOT be the issue it will be a failed strut bellows. we do not repair the airbag we replace the whole strut, a airbag kit if you find one, never works correctly .

hope this helps.
