I'm going to spend some time in my doors this weekend.
Lubing windows winders that won't, and door locks that don't.

Bentley manual makes reference to side airbags when worknig on doors.
How do I know for SURE, before I get inside, whether I have door airbags?

I have side airbags in my Landcruiser. There are imprints in the door mouldings that say "SRS SIDE AIRBAGS FITTED". Its very noticeable

I would suggest that if your car has them fitted, there would be some reference on the vehicle near there location. Similar to the airbags in the steering wheel and the passenger airbags over the glove box.

Hope this helps

Its that rectangle thing on the right hand side of the door. It says SRS on them I THINK but i haven't really looked closely, but as you see, if you have those in your car, then you have side airbags. But this came I think only from 97 onwards though Im not sure.

Well no airbags, so I jumped right in and started taking things apart.
Can you believe you have to pull the whole window and its rubbers out just to get to the door locks?
