SIR System pain my A#$

Dannnnnng, anyone ever have to replace the passenger side air bag before? Just jumped into it heads first the other day... All-data (half-data) completely mislead me..... Pretty much made it look like you come in from behind the glove box and pull it right out.... WRONG.

GMSI shows pretty much removing the center console, steering wheel, all of the controls, then essentially most of the dash panel in order to get at the bag correctly. What a pain in the A#$. Basically gave up, called it a day. friggin bummed me out.

Then to top things off, the yard I went to gave me the wrong Clockspring, and tried to give me the seat belt mechanism after I asked for the pretensioners. Then for about 20 minutes or so kept telling me they were giving me the correct part. 0_o ...... They later apologized, then told me they only sell the pretensioners with the seat... DANG IT!!!!! , $212-$250 each at the dealer.

Today though, they finally located the correct clockspring.

Really turning into a headache.


Has anyone else dealt with the SIR system much? Anyone hints, short-cuts, or tips?
Uhhh, any pretensioners out there for sale?

Well, I'm afraid I can't help you with the airbag install, but, I may be able to help you out with the pretensioners.
A buddy and I bought a used pair of GTO seats to make into office chairs, and I believe the pretensioners were attached.



Are they the cylinders attached to the seat rail with the steel braided cable attached?

I think it'd be rad for someone to place these on a little platform. I used to sell powered coolers. A 5 gallon Igloo chest, where half was used for a 49cc 2 stroke, and other for beer. I always got smiles with that at track days. I'm sure we could rig that chair up.
