Hello,

I got told that the air bag stops working after 10 years or something? I've been wanting to change the steering wheel but due to having an air bag its stopped me doing so.

Could anyone shed some light on this for me please?

i doubt very much it stops working!
It should 'technically' be checked by nissan after 10 years just to cover there asses if u have a crash and it doesn't go off.

Haynes manual reccomend getting the air bag checked by Nissan after the car is 10 years old.

It'll probably still be working fine though.

thats slightly worrying, but at least your ok and thats all that matters, supose airbags arent something you can test because once they go they're gone. its one of those 'it'll be alright on the night' kinda things eh?
