    seat airbags

    when changing seats and fitting seats with airbags into a car that didnt have airbags what problems will occur? or can i just fit them after removing the airbags first?

    thanks

    You could just fit them, but don't connect them up.

    its when its the other way round youd need tech2 etc - ie fitting non SRS seats into a model which previously had SRS ones

    when you say dont connect them do you mean plug them in or something??? hoping to get them at a bargain price delivered including door cards!!! are the rear seats easy to remove?
