Hi there.

Anyone know if its possible to replace the drivers side airbag located within the seat? Or do you have to replace the whole seat?

On a mazda 6 it looks possible but on a 3 not sure. Nothing mentioned about it in the service manual either.

Yes, there's a zipper that runs along the back bottom of the seat. You can pull that up to access the airbag.

Are you trying to access a bag that has been deployed already? If not, you have to be careful that you don't 'spark' a non-deployed bag. You may also have to clear any DTC's associated with the SRS system when you disconnect it.

Thanks for the reply. Yes the seat airbag was deployed. Will look to replace it but don't want to have to buy the whole seat. Wonder why they don't mention it in the service manual.

Don't know why the service manual wouldn't mention it. But, I've accessed that air bag myself. It's easier to get to if you're able to remove the lumbar support lever first.
