Good afternoon.

Well I just bought myself a Mazda 3 2010 EU. With steering wheel on the left ( if you are sitting in the car )

The car was in a collision going 30km/h.
And both front airbags did explode and the driver site seatbelt is stuck.

Well I know how to exchange the steering wheel airbag.

But I want to get some ideas for the dashboard airbag on the passenger side.
- What would be the best way ?

- Buy a whole dash with a airbag, and then
replace everything ( seams alot of work )

- or is possible to only replace the airbag without removing the whole dash!? And the some how patch the old dash where the hole is after the airbag...And make it look like new ?

And one other thing, after replacing these 3 items, it is enough to get the old module to get reset ?

Hope somebody has helpful ideas
Best regards

Isn't your vehicle insured? New dash/airbag is very expensive.

It is.
But I bought the vehicle like this.
Parts are actually not that expensive.

I'm just wondering what would be the best way to replace dashboard airbag...?


Regards.

Most likely the whole dash needs to be replaced. That is usually the case and therefor the car was a totalloss case.
Seatbelt is stuck because of the belt tensioner has went off. That also needs to be replaced. With all the airbag shock sensor/detanators/module. All these are made for single use.
I hope you bought the car really cheap
