Disarming (temporarily) Side Curtain Air Bags

buckyNovember 15, 2010

Good Day Fellas: I have a real annoying rattle coming from the seat belt mechanism on the side post between the doors on my wife's 07 Malibu. I was going to remove the interior upholstery panel to get at the rattle but am reluctant to do so until I disarm the air bag located in this area. Can I disarm the bag by disconnecting the battery cable or is some other procedure necessary.

Thanks a lot: Bucky2

My '03 Ford Ranger book says to disconnect the battery and wait 2 minutes to avoid accidental deploymant of any SRS device. Presumably your heap would have about the same type of arrangement - ie wait a while for it to disarm.

Thanks for the response to my inquiry mxyplx. As the make and age of our vehicles is very different I'm reluctant to presume that they're the same set-up. Setting off an air bag is not something I want to chance so I'll have to do some more homework on this. Thanks again for the info on your Ford though. Bucky2
