    Has anyone here tried to disable the passenger seat airbag?
    is there any button to do so?
    I wanted to put a carseat for my son, and hoping to find a way to diable the airbag.

    Thanks

    Hello Tazach,
    Looking at the owners manual, it does not seem possible to disable the passenger airbag (page 3-12). In fact, it goes a lot further, saying "Do not put an infant or child seat in the front seat" (where are they supposed to sit? In the boot? - Maybe not). Page 3-10 is basically saying children under 13 should not travel in the Copen! :eek:

    Our son is 21 - so no problem there, :rolleyes: but it would be interesting to find out what other Copen owners have done in the past.... Can this no kids rule really be true? :think:

    Rex.

    P.S. The owners manual can be found in the 'directory' tab of this site.

    Thanks for reply Rex.

    I was going through the Japanese Manual ( Which I could not read), there is a picture of a reversed car seat with an X on top, this I assume means no reverse carseat.
    Below that is a picture with the carseat facing front, with no X on top of it.... so I am assuming that is ok..... I could not read the writing , so if anyone know anything about this, please let me know.

    P.S. I try to download the english manual in the directory page, but couldn't click on anything. Do I need to do anything first to download it?

    Tazach,
    Make sure you are logged in. The manual is in pdf format. I just click on the picture of the manual and IE opens a new tab and starts to download.

    Hope this helps.

    Just something regarding the Airbag. If I were to change steering wheel, can the air bag at the steering wheel still be used if fitted in again?

    I don't know the answer, but I would think not.
    Either way, it sounds like a question for a dealer. As well as safety,there could be an issue with insurance.

    Personally, I wouldn't like to do it unless I was 100% sure it was okay.
