shop is asking close $800 to repair airbag light which is on, is this right


Asked by Sep 03, 2013 at 08:46 PM about the 2007 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 2007 is due for inspection, but airbag light is on,  repair shop is asking close $800 because they said that they need to remove drive seat and repair/replace sensor switch inside the seat.  I find this very difficult to swallow.  Any advise anyone.

Get a couple more local estimates, every shop is different.


This item is under a recall by Hyundai. Find out of your VIN # is included in the recall. Repair should be free.


If you are out of warranty then call a recycling yard ask for the seat. Installing is not very hard. 4 bolts and connect the wires and your done. You can also take to a shop or see video on youtube.
