If you are replacing air bags, you probably need a HELM manual. Best $80 you will ever spend on your car. Passenger side is not easy---3 bolts hold it to the cross brace and and there's a clamp arrangement on each end of the bag that cannot be gotten to unless you have a LONG magnetic screwdriver. Also, be sure to disconnect your battery before you do any SRS work.

You haven't lived until an airbag goes off in your face. Trust me on this one.

Updated Version (v2.3 optimized)

STEPS:
1. Disconnect the Battery

2. Remove the Courtesy light assembly. It is help in with 3 plastic screws. Then just pull it out. Once you have it loose, remove the plug for the light.


3. Once it's removed, you'll have to remove 4 screws. they hold in the glove box.


4. Now you'll have to unclip the top part. 3 clips hold it in. I used a flat knife to pry it off. Becareful not to break the clips.


5. You will now have the glove box removed. I forgot, but there might be a harness you'll have to disconect for the TRUNK release button.

6. There is not much space to work with. You'll to look up and find the main beam:


7. First, disconnect the airbag harness from the SRS harness and plug the airbag harness into the RED plug. AS SHOWN:




8. Now, you'll have to remove 6 bolts that clamp down the airbag. (you'll need an extention for your ratchet set to get up there)





If you feel that you can wiggle the airbag out, ignore #9.
*****9. I forgot, but you might need a screw driver to remove 2 screws on each side of the airbag. Steiveray said they are clamps also. If you have to, remove these 4 screws.


10. At this point, you should only have to pull up. It's gimmied in there, so wiggle it around. Becareful not to damage the dashboard.

Installation is in reverse.

Steiveray talked about some clamps. I kindof remember removing 2 screws on each side of the airbag when I was figuring out how to do it myself. This woudl Be there location:


All you need is a long long screw driver to get up there.

Pretty work, Ballistic. I called them clamps because I didn't know what else to call them. :p Once you figure out how it's done, it's really not that hard.
