Does a 2001 accord sedan have a side air bag? If so where is it ? In the door?

Honda accord

I don't believe the 01 Accord had side air bags available. If they did, it would most likely be in the B-pilar or as a curtain-style descending from the top of the window. But again, I'm fairly certain the 01 only had two airbags.

That's what I was thinking but thanks for the confirmation.. They are telling me the side air bag inflater is bad so is that a different unit than the airbag in the passenger dash or is it all in one the same?

From what I see online, the 01 accord only had side airbags in the EX and V6 models. There was a recall on that generation Accord for air bag deployment, but I don't know how long the window for free repair is open. Is this a dealership telling you that you need an inflator?

yes it is the dealer telling us that. This is a salvaged car but since it was reconstructed they will repair the drivers side airbag for free they said under recall. Also they said crash module is bad never said it had a crash code or nothing they just want 1100.00 to replace it. Then they said they said the passanger air bag inflator is bad which I am assuming means the whole unit in the dash,..

Is there any way to get the crash (SRS) module out without removing the center console???

Youre gonna have to pull the lower half of the console out to get to it. The bottomhalf comes apart pretty easily though. Its the upper console thats a pain.
