how do you know the connection has come loose?

the dash board has to come out to access the airbag although you should be able to see the connection on the left side of airbag with glove box removed.

Cannot see where to connect
Think dash has to come out
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Even with a mirror
The dash does have to come out, i was thinking there was a way to see the connection. If memory serves a brace might be in the way. Did you need the rest of the instructions?
