Asked by Jul 11, 2015 at 03:58 PM about the 2006 Ford Focus ZX5 S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My daughter hit an elevated man hole cover which exploded the driver's air bag and
ruined the car seat (same seat).  The car is a 2006 Ford Focus.  Air bag is located
about shoulder height closest to the driver's side door.  I found a replacement driver's
car seat with air bag but am not sure if I have SDM's, and the like that I will need to
replace as well.  Got a rough price from a Ford dealer in the neighborhood of $2100 for
a car seat.  I cannot replace the car seat without an air bag as it will not pass
inspection.  Any ideas?

I'd try a salvage yard. If you don't have one near you check out carpart.com you can check out salvage yards nationwide with the website. HTH. -Jim

James -"doofus" - that was uncalled for. Already done so and have not heard back from the insurance company. Contacted the town with the elevated man hole covers and that company was subcontracted and are no longer around. The town has only given us a run-around stating that the company responsible has packed up and left the state; hence, the delay on the insurance response. My question was quite simple - how do i replace the seat, are there SDM's, BCM's and the like that I would need to replace as well. I already have a reserved car seat using automotix.com. Helpful responses would be appreciated. Please tone down your response or simply do not respond. Thank you.
