Door air bag has a yellow connector. Manual link is 8 pages for a 1996 and they want 3.50E payment. I have access to the WIS, just always have trouble navigating, anyone have a document number for door removal ?
Also airbag connector is on side (see picture). Do you slide, twist, or pull to remove the connector? (Door has been without power for days but apparently there is no single body connector so need to unplug each individual component. Want to test the power window but not with the airbag connected. Yes it is riveted in place.
Also found this which says what not to do but not how to remove the connector:
"Disconnect the side impact airbag squib harness connector (2) from the side impact airbag.
CAUTION: Do not pull on the squib connector wires or pry on the connector insulator to disengage the connector from the side airbag inflator connector receptacle. Improper removal of the squib wires and their connector insulators can result in damage to the airbag circuits or connector insulators. "
Update: it is a keyed two pin plastic connector that must be pulled straight out from the module. Do Not Twist and be gentle. This just leaves the PDL connector and the power windows connector to figure out.
Then a matter of cutting all of the zip ties and pulling the cable assembly out the door. Note: wear gloves, the tape used to bind the cables together is covered with nasty black gunk.
