Airbag Diagnostics & Replacement
Don’t let just anyone diagnose or re-install an airbag in your vehicle. This should only be done by a professional
body shop that knows your vehicle’s safety and electrical systems. After your vehicle’s
outer structure and seat belt,
the airbags in your vehicle are your primary safety system that prevents
to you or your vehicle’s other occupants.
In the event of an accident, once the bumper begins to
compress and metal starts to bend as designed, the outer structure of your car
transfers that energy to internal safety systems. These are split second relays
of data and electrical signals throughout the vehicle’s computer system that
sense such things as driver/passenger position, weight, height, vehicle speed, orientation
and the area of impact. Sensors under the outer skin of the vehicle then fire
your airbags, tighten, then slowly release your seatbelt, then collapse the
airbag, all in an effort to decrease bodily injury. We can straighten the metal and replace the
airbag, we can’t replace you. Choose a collision center that understands the
importance of making repairs that are both cosmetically and mechanically sound.
