Default I'm ready to break the daem airbag plug under the seat!

I know. Search. It yielded all the information but I just can't get either one apart.

It took me a good 15 minutes of ****ing with it, I can't even remember what I did to finally get it apart, but trust me it will come apart.

I assume you are trying to unplug the factory seat. Airbag plugs are always have 2 fasteners. On the subaru one you pull the green slider down and then press the button under where the slider was. I found it easier to do with 3 hands.

Because I'm building a car that functions correctly without rigging anything. That is the kind of **** you do when you want to cover a check engine light when you are trying to sell your beater for $500 instead of $300.

I got it. I just pinched the male end and pushed back the green slider with a flathead. Then, PULL LIKE HELL! That was rediculous!

haha wait, you were trying to figure out how to un-plug the airbag clip that connects to the seat? That is a bitch. I watched a friend get so mad that he went and just cut the wire and took the seat out.

I almost did that. I won't be using it anymore and will probably have to do the resistor mod (unless someone knows of something else other than black tape over the light). I figured that I could just create my own plug with some basic electrical connectors. They don't come undone if you tighten them up. They would still be easier than removing that bitch again.

just get the 3.3ohm resisters, fold it into the shape of a staple , then tape overtop and you're done.

Uh yea, no they don't. It is easy in theory. Slide the green end forward all the way, press on the "lock" on the yellow end and separate. It's not that easy.

have to agree w/ Uncle here.
took the front seats out of a 05 WRX a month or so back.
I don't think we (Daishi00 & I) spent more than a minute on either clip.
probably more like 30 seconds each.

what does my friend always tell me?
"first, you have to be smarter than the plastic clip . . ."
