Passenger B-pillar and door airbags are unaffected.
Driver's side airbags are not affected. Since there will always be someone present in the driver's seat, ther eis no need for an OC3 sensor mate from factory.
Thanks for the info Tom. I don't exactly follow the above. Isn't the risk you describe the same for the passenger and the driver? Meaning, the driver could be driving without securing his/her seatbelt as well, and he/she could be hurt if the driver's side airbag goes off. What am I missing?
