Request

Do you have to replace a front passenger airbag on a Subaru even if the airbag did not deploy? The repair information seems to indicate that it should.

Response

Per our contact at Subaru: “No, both airbags do not need to be replaced if just one deploys. The one that deployed would need replacement only.”
