I bought a 1997 Saturn Wagon in Hawaii, as we needed a reliable used car cheap. The owner "forgot" to tell us that the airbags had deployed, and the light on the dash was covered with black tape. I bought some airbags on eBay, and am sending off the SRS control module to get erased and reset so it's like new. The problem is:
The steering wheel airbag connector melted badly when the bag deployed, and it's part of the "clock-spring" harness. I don't want to tear that all down and replace that because one plug is melted. I can splice, and shrink-tube that together, no problem.
My question is: Besides the pain in the butt job, what else do I have to be careful with... besides hoping the bags don't deploy on me accidentally?
