Then you go remove your airbag because you don't want to die, just to be defected by the cops and fail your inspection LOL... can't win.

has any ever had their 90's era car air-bag go off? wondering if they even work at all

 

Edit: I've hit a few kangaroos and never set anything off, but not sure how much of an impact is required.

I’m no air bag expert but I have been in a accident where an air bag was deployed so can speak from experience that it went off when most of the front was totally damaged. 

They are supposed to last a very long time whatever that equates to your guess is good as mine.

considering the replacement for affected cars is reportedly an 18 months wait, and recently a guy died from one of these days or weeks from replacement, you could argue (probably in court) that removal was justified for fear of safety?

This is exactly why I feel uneasy as we don’t know for sure whether our cars are affected or not and no one seems to know for sure.

Hmm I thought the faulty Takata airbags were 2005 onwards. If it's going back that far... Dayem.

So, in Australian delivered cars it goes back to 1999 (E46 BMW). https://www.productsafety.gov.au/recalls/compulsory-takata-airbag-recall/takata-airbag-recalls-list

Interestingly, no E90's are affected.

Wikipedia has more info but fails to cover the vehicles affected - perhaps a liability issue? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takata_Corporation#Cars_affected

Pretty sure no skylines are on the recall list. This is the list of affected Nissans, i obtained this from the link on iron chefs website. The list was compiled by the Jap ministry of transport.

I don’t understand how this issues goes so far back and they’ve only worked it out 18 or so months ago

Hey mate, thanks for the info. Still doesn’t specifically exclude our cars but it does tend to suggest we are not. 

One can only hope we don’t find out the hard way!

Considering the number of these airbags in circulation and only ~25 deaths and ~250 injuries your odds are pretty good.

Yep agreed but I would hate to be the 1-5% chance with a hole through my face.

Hmmmm the other link doesn't mention e90s at all. 

I'm screwed either way as my steering wheel is not factory fitted.

The link in your post further up the page lists E90s - it shows as "E8x 1 series, E83 X3 and E9x 3 series" - thats the link I followed to get the page I linked.

My airbag was replaced a few months ago by BMW. Is your steering wheel a BMW supplied one?

My previous suggestion stands, could SAU possibly write to Nissan to get a clearer answer as they sue as hell ain’t tell me crap.

I ran my VIN as above on Nissan JP and got the result: "There was no recall information subject to your car." - 95 R33 GTS25-T

I did the same and as in the screenshot i posted about 10 posts up, no skylines (all series) have been recalled and no Nissan prior to the year 2000.
