996 window regulator replacement


Recommended Posts

Do you have to remove the air bag while working on removing the window regulator?

 

I unplugged the battery to be safe and I didn’t want the air bag lights to come on but now I realized I need to move the window down to get access to it but I can’t Because I unplugged the battery.

 

Can I still work with the battery bulged and car is on with out unplugging the airbag. Just worried this thing will go off on me.

 

First time doing this so any tips and comments will be so helpful.

I would disconnect it and put it someplace safe while you work on the regulator. Resetting an airbag fault is easy with the right software tool.

I once saw a shop tech lean an airbag against a wall while he worked on the window regulator - the airbag slipped down the wall and went off.

The customer got a new airbag.

Thank you for your reply. I just didn’t wanna pay Porsche 200 just to get it reset when I did all the work.
