Early GU passenger airbag

Post by fralanti »

I have a strange query, but here it goes anyway.

On the earlier GL model GU Patrol (1998-2002) there is a SRS airbag sign on the dashboard on the passenger side. Can anyone confirm that there is actually an airbag installed?

As far as I know the 1998 up til the 2004 GL model ( pre-facelift) never came out with a passenger airbag, only a drivers side airbag in the steering wheel. Only the GRX had the passenger option. From the facelift model onward, I don't know if they then did come out with this as standard thereafter.

If you really wish to investigate this, you can pop off the soft vinyl rectangle piece between the cubby hole and the top of the dash ( it just clips in ) and look inside. If all you see is a thick steel round tube lost in a rather large open void, then you don't have the airbag.
