I bought my RX330 with a deployed driver's airbag which also incudes knee airbag and had driven the vehicle for close to 3 years with no incident or major repair. The very has been very faithful although with proper preventive maintenance. Servicing of engine oil and tranny fluid have been routinely as at when it's due.

My wife mostly drives this vehicle just to the office & back of less than 5 miles daily. Recently, I became seriously concerned about the airbag though I have always wanted to refit the airbag to functional state. Since its better to air on the side of caution, I made up my mind to fix it. More so, Xmas is around the corner & my family will be travelling to the east in the ride, I decided to contact kingreign about the possibility of replacing the deployed airbag.

A scan revealed 3 major codes of the steel wheel airbag, driver's knee airbag and the driver's seat belt. While diagnosing as I had anticipated, he discovered that the vehicle seller had concealed the airbag light with a black masking tape behind the instrument cluster. This ensures that the airbag light never came up when the ignition is turned on. While buying the car, my immediate major concern was to ensure that the frame and chassis were not impacted during the accident as this will guarantee my tyres are not always out of alignment & unnecessary uneven wear. More so, vin report indicated it was a lone accident meaning there's no multiple airbag deployment. So I went ahead to pay for the vehicle.

So fast forward to last week, my greatest fear was hoping that the dealer who sold the vehicle to me didnt delete the airbag & removed the airbag module. So the moment he discovered the black masking tape, I heaped a sigh of relief. With this relief, we placed an order for the 3 items. Items arrived after 3 days and was installed. After the installation, all the codes evaporated but the srs light remained lit on the instrument cluster.

Further troubleshooting revealed that the airbag module needs to be replaced. Now, this is the deal breaker as the module was hidden under the gear selector, which requires that you must remove a significant part of the dashboard in other to access it including the center console which coincidently is a channel through which aircon circulates to the rear seat. It also requires some level of caution & expertise because the Lexus dash facial is a delicate one and could easily get scratched or damaged. We searched all over Apo & Zuba spare part markets in Abuja with no success. Since I have a reliable brother & friend at Ladipo, I contacted him to make an enquiry. Within few minutes of search in Ladipo, the module was found. The following day, I paid and item was shipped to Abuja.

Stay tuned...





So you finally sold the car to him
