Similar to 98-02 Hondas, Acuras, Toyotas and more. Only need a screwdriver and 10mm socket and ratchet. Optional tools include a crowbar and 8mm socket. Easy Procedure. Thank you for watching! Love you guys.
Here's an inside tear down of the internal components of an airbag, and how it works to save you in an accident. An airbag works on the principle of a rapidly expanding gas that fills a balloon of air to cushion the impact of the occupant's head during a collision. The reactive compound in the inflator is sodium azide, which decomposes into nitrogen gas and sodium. This explosion fills the airbag within milliseconds, and the deflates allowing the driver to regain control of the vehicle. The Takata airbag recall was issued to vehicles with defective airbag inflators that would inflate with too much force. This could cause shrapnel to explode into the occupant's face and cause injury or death. In this video, a Honda airbag is taken apart as a demonstration to show the internal components of the airbag, including the airbag cover, the airbag balloon, the horn switch, airbag inflator and tamper proof electrical connectors. Warning: Never take apart an airbag that has not been exploded. Any static or electrical current can set off the unstable sodium azide compound, causing it to explode.

This is my detailed procedure for fixing an intermittent airbag and seat belt warning light on a 7th generation 2003 Honda Accord. In this video, I diagnose the problem to be with the electrical switch inside the seat belt buckle. I then show how to disassemble the buckle, clean and lubricate the switch, and confirm the fix. For illustration purposes, I removed the seat from the vehicle and then the buckle from the seat before accessing the switch. However, this job can likely be done nearly as well without removing the seat or buckle. When equipped with the right basic tools and some patience, it is not a difficult job.
In this DIY auto repair video, young mechanic Aiman will show you how to remove the Passenger Side Airbag located inside the dashboard on a 2004 Honda Accord (which is the same for all model DX LX EX 2.4L & 3.0L Engine years 2003, 2005, 2006 & 2007). Similar process applies to most Honda and Acura cars, SUVs and minivans such Element, Civic, CRV, Pilot and Odyssey.
Removing the passenger side airbag is not really a difficult process, although care such as disconnecting the battery for at least 20 minutes or longer is highly recommended.
In order to take out the dashboard passenger side airbag, you must first remove the glove box. In this video, we will show you how to remove the glove compartment as well.
We've previously done a video on how to remove the steering wheel airbag on the same car. If you would like to watch that video, here's the link: https://youtu.be/151fPVku5YY
