That's always a risk, but you make compromises. I also have sfi roll bar padding on all areas that could be contacted by the head/helmet.

And adding these resistors makes the passenger side airbag functional?

In the open plug underneath the steering column. That is where I put mine and it works great. The pic below is how I did it to begin with. Later I cut the other half of the plug from the clock spring leaving some wire and soldered the resistor to the wire. I used a 3.3 ohm resistior.


The drivers side airbag uses three wires on my car. I have the older airbag system with the two separate horn buttons.

damn!!! i just swapped MOMO WRX wheel on my 97L...i notice that the connector is different on the airbag so i left it unplug...so now i have my airbag light on...my question is
- does my passenger airbag not working too now?
- and since i didn't plug the connector, i won't be having airbag explode in my head because i didnt connect them right???
i never thought about all this before...damn got me thinking now

if the SRS light is on, none of the airbags are going to deploy from what I know.

Is there a good write-up on removing them safely? I need to take out my passenger side. I have a cage + seats + Harnesses, and actually to be legal for hillclimbs the airbags must be removed or disabled.

just make sure that the battery is disconnected at all times while servicing any airbag system.

also, touch bare metal in your car before handling any airbag in your vehicle.

getting in and out of your car can generate a static charge.

the passenger airbag should be accessable once the glovebox is removed
