    Need to change driver seat belt. Worried about the side airbags!

    Hi! I need to change the driver seat belt in my Saab 9-3 2.0t from 2000.

    I'm getting help from a friend who has done a lot of work on different cars but I'm wondering if anyone has any tips and tricks for this specific operation? Something we should avoid doing?

    Maybe some tips regarding the side airbags? I'm a little bit worried about causing some kind of problem with them.


    Thank you in advance!
    Charlie

    Not a big deal to do, just disconnect the battery before ( +&- ) don't turn the keys before all is done, the sides airbags are situated on the seat so no worries about .
    it's better if you tear off the doors seals on the body like that you can pry out the plastic fairing firmly for ripping off from the body.
    Good luck
