Passenger Air Bag Cover

Does anyone have pictures or information on how the passenger air bag cover is attached? I took the truck into Car Toys to have the XM radio hooked up and they didnt seem to seat it back into place an it is not flush with the dash anymore. Either they damaged it or didnt put it back in place and I would like to fix it. I will not take it back to them since I had to hasstle with getting two door dings fixed after my last round with them. They are idiots.

As someone who just removed the passenger airbag, I can tell you that it is a very difficult process. There are a total of 4 bolts that hold it in place. 2 are accessed from underneath and point straight up. They are the easy ones, a 10mm socket and they are off. The other two are very difficult, they are located on the top sides of the unit and face away from the firewall. I had an extremely difficult time getting them off.

As far as getting the dash off without removing the airbag, all I can say is that the installer forced the dash panel around the airbag panel. I would not reccomend doing that and that is what probably happend to your install and is why it does not appear flush.

The shop manual clearly describes the steps required to remove the airbag.

BTW, I had to remove the airbag to install a new stereo.
