just get a bolt and washer with a big space to fix it. i even used in my audi a spring that i hooked into it and then latched it to the fender brace. Both my tabs had Broke off and it works. a picture of the type of spring follows below. If you have to drill a hole threw a solid peice of the frame that does not compramise the inner portion

Thank you so very much, I appreciate this. Perhaps you have an easy (inexpensive) suggestion for a driver's seat airbag light that won't go off?
