Having problems with your Ford F-150 ?

I hit a ditch and both my airbags deployed and now i cant move my seat belts

Answers :

Inside your seatbelts there are small explosives known as pre-tensioners, when you crash these pre tensioners go off and pull you back into the seat as part of the SRS( supplemented restraint system) which means that aswel as new airbags you also need new seatbelts for your car.

I have a 1999 lexus sc300. The airbags deployed, and my body shop wants to replace both seatbelts, both airbags, the diagnostic module, and possibly the clock spring. I called a lexus dealer also, and they said the diag module would not likely need replaced, and did not mention seat belts. As far as pretensioners on the seatbelts go, would I need new ones, or will the seatbelts still lock? Can diag mods be reset safely? How often do clock springs fail?


This is a very touchy issue if someone were to get into an accident and they did not replace everything they just mentioned they could be sued for millions and they would lose. NO reputable shop would do this job without replacing the pretensioners a ... Lexus SC 300

1991 Mitsubishi Mirage 3 dr. HB. The motorized shoulder belts deploy erratically. I drive this car for short hauls only and sometimes the belt will deploy within 60 seconds after starting or may not deploy after driving for 5-10 minutes.
