Replacing the air bag computer in my 2002 OBW. FSM is confusing me. I can't decipher this:

all it says is "remove lower cover <See W1A0>" and "remove console box <see W1A0>".

but nowhere in 5-4 or anywhere else can i find reference to "lower cover" or "console box" nor is the W1A0 anywhere to be seen.

there is one diagram i can find which seems to show it somewhere under the radio, not sure if that means remove seats/center section or the dash/radio.

The airbag puter is bolted to the driveshaft hump if i remember correctly. Do whatever you have to do to get to that point.

the shift console just to the front of the shift lever, below the radio and heater controls, on the floor, at the hump.

good luck

thanks folks. didn't want to remove the dash if it was in under the center console or remove the center console if it was behind the dash.

yep, removed the triangular trim between the dash and the floorboard - 'im guessing that's the "lower cover". as well as the shifter cover.
