Thanks for your thoughts on air bag removal. I will check with PA DOT and see what they say.

Hi Bob, I know its some time ago this airbag issue was discussed, but I have a 1997 993 targa, I want to disable the passenger bag so I can put a baby carrier in the front. In order to ensure the task has been carried out correctly and safely, I physically want to remove the connector from the air bag detonator and then replace it with a resistor 2.8 ohm, 1/4 watt. Do you know whether this has been carried out succesfully, if so could you confirm where to access the air bag detonator connector, and whether or not even after disconnection there is any other way that the airbag could detonate. Please don't get me wrong I am no cheap skate when safety is involved. I have had the car at the main dealers, to have the air bag seatbelt disconnector installed but apparently they only incorporated the plug connector in the wiring loom for late 1997 cars unfortunatly mine is a feb 97 car, and too old.

You'll need to purchase this item.

It's an L shaped part that has a copper plate on top of it and a 1/4 pin on the bottom. This part pushes into the hole on the steering column face, there is only one hole, it is at the 1'O'clock position and looks like a slot with a hole in the middle. This contact will allow the brass plate on the bottom of the Momo hub adapter to make contact thus completing the circuit when the horn is pushed.

For cars without a steering wheel airbag, I believe it's already intalled.

Yes that's right. And for information it can be re-used if anyone finds it's necessary to replace a broken turn signal assembly. Like I had to

Just a question:

Do the 964 seat belts have a folded section somewhere designed to tear, releasing the occupant another 3-6 inches in the event of a large crash? My Miata had this, and I was instructed to cut it open so that in the event of a crash my face wouldn't bash my Momo non-airbag wheel.

I'm looking at the user guide at LTB Motorsports and that appers to be the only option for 89-04 911's.

Now that you mention it, check the end where the lap belt is bolted to the body. Pull the plastic sleeve up covering the bolt--I believe it's folded there.

No problem. By the speed at which you work, I'm guessing you'll have this installed by the weekend and sharing pics.

If I may add something to Step 3: Loosen the '24mm' nut and wind it to near the end of the thread but don't take it fully off. Then when you pull on the steering wheel, if it's a bit tight it, won't bust your face when it suddenly lets go (don't ask how I know).

what color is the horn wire? I purchased my car from a guy who did this conversion but didn't run the factory horn... that is right, he ran a second horn with a horn button under the dash...... so now I need to find the right wire for the factory horn as I have the correct horn contact from Porsche. Thanks Joey.
