Airbag renewal

Just reading the service interval schedule on the S3 since it's getting a service tmw... it says 14 years after manufacture airbags should be replaced by a dealer...

Has anyone ever replaced ANY airbags on any model that's reached the specified age limit ?

What happens if you don't bother replacing airbags ? Will they go off anytime or not at all ?

Discuss please, after all getting a dealer to do a job this extensive especially if you have airbags all over the place will be mega bucks !!

Funny enough, I was reading this the other day too!  Would be interesting to see what the dealer says to it..

Leave it! Don't believe the hype! Lol!

Think they say it as the pyrotechnics are meant to be past it after a certain age and therefore possibly not deploy in an accident.

something along the lines of

"all done, that will be 1500 please"

is it a big job or one of those things that the manufacturer stipulates to try and get more money out of you?

i would imagine replacing the airbags in the seats would be yes
