Thumbs Up Alfa 155 Advise

Hi Alfa fans,All new to me this site as new member.
Just purchased 1995 155 2.0 twin spark,Sports pack.
Alfa's had a busy life from what ive discovered so far.
Just gone over car thoroughly and discovered
black metal bar under dash.
This bolts from Bulkhead upto dash area.
Does this bar look like it is bent in two places or
is this bar damaged.Persume something to do with crash
impact or Airbag as lots of writing on it.
Await your advise and help,Cheers!

Re: Alfa 155 Advise

i do believe it relates to the airbag, but i've also read it does have 2 kinks in it. however, my car does not have an airbag, so i can't be sure.

perhaps post up a photo.

note, the 155's airbag relies on a 'mechanical trigger', and not 'electrical'. so an impact shoves the bar towards the trigger on the back of the airbag.

also note, airbags have an 'expiry', so you may wish to confirm if it needs replacing, if you want it to be 100% reliable.

Yes it to do the air bag.

Bend that bar and it goes off.
