  • Finding air bags

    My question is to find out what kind of tools are other fire departments using to remove vehicles interior trimming to locate air bag components to prevent accidently cutting through inflation cylinders?

    Use anything small enough to get between the plastic. We have alot of tools that can get the job done. My preference is any small prying tool.

      Sledge hit the mark. The trim that runns up the "A" post and across the roof line is generally held on by small metal clips, if anything. Once you get it pryed away form the sheet metal, all you have to do is tug on it, and it will come right off. Now the molding for the "B" post takes a little more work, depending if the seat belt connects to the post or not. The "C" post molding is the same as the "A" post, unless the shoulder belts connect there. Most of the moldngs are cheap plastic, and will break with a little muscle. Now for anything under the dash, forget it. For one, there is nothing back there for you to mess with, and finding something back there is a nightmare. Besides playing around back there could set off the airbags. Be carefull of any connector that is yellow. These are for the airbags.
