Sorry if this is a stupid question (mainly second part) but i'm pretty new to Ford's.
My g/friend has pranged our mondeo as stated eleswhere, the dash and drivers air bag has gone off. Now the cars a 55 plate so do I need to replace the dash with a facelift car 03-07? or is the dash shell the same as an early car and its just the fascia's etc that are updated?
Plus I know I need to replace the dash, steering wheel, passenger seat belt tensioner (drivers one hasnt retracted and looks ok) and also the ECU for the airbags but what about the sensor? does this need to be replaced or is it simply a shock type switch that can it be reused? i'm terrified of replacing everything putting the battery on and having the bags blow again
Laslty parts compatability, can I use a front slam panel and bumper bar from any diesel model?
As you can probably tell i'm trying to fix it on a tight budget for her.
