    Interior Problems

    am i just one of those special cases that find it hard to find anything for my astra or am i just going crazy cos i need two new front seats in my v reg astra 1.8 sport BUT, my front seats have airbags and EVERY seat i come across doesnt.
    someone told me the only versions that have the side seat airbags are the GSI,s but im pretty sure i would know if my car was one of those and its got those SRS AIRBAG thingys in the side of the seats just below the tilt/slide handle.

    ANY help appreciated as finding these seats are proving as hard as finding rock horse s***.

    also do you think its possile to fit an airbag into a seat that doesnt have one??? or would the wiring be too difficult.

    first up why do you need new seats mate ???
    what up with the ones fitted to your car
    is it a 3 or 5 door ??
    you could fit coupe seats most of them had side air bags

    The seat frame will probably be different between one with a air bag and one without

    I think your getting confused with the pre tensioners and airbags, GSi's were the only ones to come with side airbags.

    As for the pre tensioners, your ones will swap over to your new seats.

    Side airbags were offered on all models as part of the "Protection Pack" option.

    You may have curtain airbags as well - IIRC it should say on the A pillar trim
