    It sounds to me that there is not a switch for that stock, that it's an option. I might be wrong anyway

    Re: where is the airbag switch?

    It is a option for sure. You have to contact your dealer to install it.

    Re: where is the airbag switch?

    I have just spoken to the porsche dealer. Can you believe it is a Pounds600 option. They must be kidding. I guess kids seats will have to go in the back!

    Re: where is the airbag switch?

    Just pull the pass. airbag fuse from the panel.
    Check your manual or the fuse compartment for instructions

    Re: where is the airbag switch?

    Cheers, much cheaper option!

    In the US, all 05's must automatically turn off it the front passenger doesn't weigh enough, anyone have experience with that?

    Well that definitely is the case for my 2005 Lexus RX330 SUV. But, maybe Porsche got an exemption since my 2005 997S will need the installed kit!

    Re: where is the airbag switch?

    After a play around I have managed to comfortably fit a rear facing baby seat in the back. Have to push the front seat forward a bit, but my wife was never going to want to swap seats to sit in the rear anyway.

    I feel slightly cheated that on a Pounds70K car a deactivation switch isn't included and as a point of principal will ensure that the next seat purchased does not have a porsche crest emobossed!!

    Out of interest Alin, what sort of doc are you? You British counterparts would be most envious!

    Man that sucks that Porsche got exempt. You'd think they could find a vendor that they could buy a system from, since there are now millions of cars that have it standard in the US.
