    You would use your existing airbag

    Yes. I took mine to Paceway Mitsubishi (Dealer) here in Perth and told them what I needed. Paid $150.00 and waited 45 minutes and it was done.

    Or you can do it yourself, but I didn't want the blood nose and head ache if it decides to go bang on me half way through

    You have to disconnect the battery when doing this so that there is no risk of the airbag exploding while handling it.

    Just had one of these delivered this weekend, fitted it in around 20 minutes and it works perfectly, just needs some leather conditioner as they have been stored since 2008.

    Sorry you paid $150 for 45 mins work when changing over a wheel is about 15 mins work so in effect you have just paid $600 per hour, wow, I can think of many trades you could score for that price.

    People have this weird thought that air bags just go bang for the hell of it, they dont or they would do this while you are driving. There is more chance of an airbag deploying while fitted than there is of one going off once removed. There is a shorting connector on the plug which gives a dead short across the pins to prevent accidental deployment. ALl you need is a Torx 30 and a 17mm socket, job done.

    As for those ones on fleabay, they are all gone now

    And a 10mm spanner to disconnect and reconnect the battery.

    How do you get the horn pad off to get to the nut and airbag behind, yank it?
