The GT is getting on a bit and I've just noticed the door label says the pretensioners and clock spring should have been replaced last year. It also claims the airbags will only last another three years.

I'm not really concerned about the clock spring - if that were faulty then it would be obvious but I've never really thought about pyrotechnic lifetimes before. It didn't seem to be an issue in my previous vehicles (although it's possible I wasn't paying enough attention).

Is the label being overcautious, or is this something I should schedule soonest?

Once you see the price of new airbags you'll probably decide to leave it as it is likely to be higher than the value of your car....

I don't know of anyone that has ever replaced an airbag due to the date warning.
