Thumbs Up Passenger Air Bag Cover Cure

I'm sure I'm not alone in having a badly fitting passenger air bag cover on my 156. The two plastic pins on the cover don't fit very well in the holes in the metal bracket and the cover usually pops up in the bottom right corner.

Well I replaced the pins, the new ones are a different design, and the cover now sits flush! For info the part number is 71713084 the only down side is the price - 4:01 + VAT each. Still it's worth it.

You don't have to remove the battery earth as the cover is restrained at the top by a strap and two clips, just fit the pins in the cover lined up with the holes and give the cover a push into place.

Will do that, thanks. It is on the "long list" of niggles that never get fixed....
