Hey all,

I was always under the impression all VT onwards had airbags in the seats/side airbags (whatever they are).
Was told today by someone in the know that not all the VT's had this and to check, usually there's an 'SRS Airbag' on the side pillar or something. Mine didn't have anything like this on there.

Mine doesn't have this, I've looked under the seat, and cannot see yellow cables (gregory's manual says SRS cables are yellow). I've got the steering wheel airbag, passenger dash airbag.

Is there a way I can check myself as to whether the seats do or do not have these installed?


Thanks

dont forget your seat is electric .. so the wires could be for the chair itself... movement front back up down etc...

It will have an SRS airbag sticker on the outside of the centre pillar.

no holden manual in the car.

I recently changed the pillar covers over. There wasn't a sticker on it previously.

Correct. Side airbags was an option on VX so would be the same on VT I would suspect. Check under the seat for a gas cannister which will tell you either way.

would it be labeled with SRS all over it?

I saw a round looking motor or something, but I think that was for the seat adjustment.
I'll have another good look tomorrow and see if I can work it out.

VT Never got side airbags (Not Even Senators),

VX Onwards had the option.

Ooo, that's good news if that's true.
Means I can throw whatever seats I want into the car.

Need to change mine soon as I've had a dicky drivers seat for near on a year and I feel that enough is enough.


Edit: Just found this information not sure how correct it is being it's an 'unofficial' holden website

Seems to give break down on each vehicle and what airbags and other features they had.

Also judging yours is a Very early Series 1 VT SS, with 5l, Pretty much gurantee no airbag fitted.
