Hey guys, while driving with the windows down the little plastic airbag sign that keeps the C pillar covering still fell off (one of the clips are broken on it) anyways, I did a search and just found some diy gluing methods to fix it, but was just wanting to replace the clips themselves. Anyone know where I can find these?
A lot of frontal damage to that SRX, but none of the front airbags went off. When I had my crash, offset frontal, my airbags didn't go off either. But I was probably traveling 10 to 15mph at the point of impact. And there was several inches of untouched area before the impact sensor would even been touched. This SRX sustained 100 times more damaged that mine did.
Whats worse is that steering wheel..wow..that and it looks like the passenger hit their head on the windshield to me...the damage does look like it's riding the fence for airbag deployment..If it was worse the whole windshield would've been cracked...accidents are bad either way...anyways, these clips... I think I'm gonna run over to the stealership today and see if they can order any..I'll let y'all know if so.
You may have to provide the color, or at least the last 6 or 8 digits of your VIN so he can determined what color interior you have.

I know that, I was being generalized about my thread. It's like saying that when I push on the brake pedal. The wheels slow down and that's it.
When in fact me pushing on the brake pedal a number of things are being done for the wheels to slow down. Like the master cylinder accepting the input from the brake pedal from the vacuum of the membrane. Then the master cylinder transfers the pressure to the brake line hoses, which are routed through the ABS module. From there, via brake lines, to the calipers. Then to the brake pads/shoes(depending on the car), then to the rotors then to the wheels.
Basically I am saying that I KNOW that the airbag sensor itself does not determined if the airbags go off.
yeah at that price there's not much of a point in ordering them through me
the one thing to worry about (which in my experience is what usually happens)
is if the plastic 'post' extruding from the back of the sail panel that the retainer clips onto has broken off and gone missing
if that post is gone then you've got noting to attach your retainer to and you're pretty much looking at getting a new sail panel
