This was pulled from a 2006 t5. The steering wheel airbag was blown. As seen in the pictures, the connectors on this one will need to be replaced. You can replace them with your existing by soldering four wires. I drove the car with the blown air bag and everything seemed to work fine, I did not get a chance to check the codes on vida. This is DSTC specific. These range from $320-$400 new, make an offer. Will sell for a lot less than those prices AS IS.

Facts, not opinion.
Actually, it's an opinion because you're wrong. The connectors can be replaced.

And this is how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54Zn65fLn0k

To interested parties, I recommend doing your own research and gathering information. My listing on eBay states if it doesn't work, you can send it back and i'll give you the money back, that is the same for this one and has been for the parts i've sold on this site. The car drove with a blown airbag and there were no lights on the dash.

Yeah, it is physically possible. Find me a manufacturer that allows SRS wiring repair. Volvo does not. I don't care what "myairbags.com" says. There's also clearly damage to one of the wires.

You suggested having a master tech or dealer repair your paperweight. Any master tech or dealer knows it should not be repaired.

And a blown airbag would set an SRS light. Every time.

Yeah I bet they don't, they'd rather sell you their new part instead of fixing stuff for you. Did you need to tell me that? When I said "soldering to be done by a master tech," that was sarcasm. Obviously Volvo isn't going to recommend it, would Volvo recommend me changing the oil myself or bringing it in to the dealer to make sure I have a professional do it with Volvo OE spec fluid?

I'm not going to listen to someone's opinion over the internet, I'll go out and gather my own information and think about it for myself. The wires/clips can be replaced and purchased by a reputable company, I already said if it doesn't work then the buyer can return it. So if there's anything else you want to run your mouth about feel free to PM me and we can discuss it. Otherwise, this discussion is over. Thanks for the bump.

Volvo doesn't say you can't change your own oil. Volvo does say (as does the rest of the industry) that SRS wiring should not be repaired. You obviously don't know the reason for such an industry standard but people should be aware of it before considering buying this paperweight.

Your unwillingness to listen to the facts doesn't change them.
