Big money. Replacing an airbag consists of replacing more than just the airbag itself. Often, sensors, springs and other pieces must be replaced. There is also a labor cost involved--replacing an airbag is not something to be done by the backyard mechanic. The total cost of replacing an airbag can be well over $1,000, and in some cars the replacement cost can be as much as $3,000 to $4,000. Also there couold be other frame and suspension damage.

Assuming an average $500 deductible, I would think a decent insurance company would cover the parts/labor associated with such a repair. How much damage overall did your Volvo sustain??

would recomend you go to a qualified mechanic/dealership as airbags are something you dont play arround with as a mechanic with 22 years on the job have seen some serious incidents some jobs can be carried out on airbags by a competant diyer following common sense guidelines but a compeate replacement is realy a dealership job as the explosive force can maim or even kill
