    Rear Air Bags Falling Down when Windows Open

    Dealer says there is no "recall" for the rear airbags falling down when driving with windows down at highway speeds.

    What is involved in fixing this, new parts ? or just modify what is in there ?

    Just wanted to ask now before I start looking at it and break off some plastic tabs or something... and not to mention airbags are a little creepy to handle when they are still plugged into the car.

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    You talking about the air bags themselves? or just the rear pillar panels that cover them up? The pillar panels coming free is a fairly common problem.

    This is a very common problem. I believe there is something in the faq on this and the fix has to do with washers. When mine did this, the dealer knew what it was instantly and replaced both sail panels no questions asked under warranty.

    I'm not having any luck finding this in the FAQ, any other help ??? I still have GM powertrain warranty, and an outside extended warranty... but that has a deductible. Anything I can do to fix this, or does it require NEW parts ???

    Thanks again.

    I finally gave up and superglued a small portion of my broken sail panel yesterday. I hope that this will stop it from flapping in the wind.
