Hello all

Postby MrPunchy » Wed Mar 31, 2010 2:25 pm

If I could ask will someone help out a new owner? I just got my 06 home and my question is this
Is there supposed to be a grill covering the lower part of the front bumper? Or it is supposed to be open right to the radiator?

Thanks man.
When I opened up the hood I saw a rag down in front of the radiator and thought how was I going to get that out then saw it open.

I guess I now know why so many people get that lower grill.

Anyone have any suggestions on seat covers? I have twin boys that are in car seats that I can see kicking the crap out of the driver and passenger seats.

Also need a wind shield wiper fluid cap and a better looking stereo. Man that thing is fugly.

Don't install seat covers on the front seats. You have air bags in both seats & a seat cover can change the way they deploy in case of an accident.
Just put the kids in the 3rd row seats & leave the 2nd row folded down.

That's if he has those airbags. They weren't standard in '05-'07 models.

I'm guessing that means it's in the seat?

What is this about above the seat belt?

O my friend if it was only that simple. My wife and I decided to have a second child we were 'blessed" with twins. I also have a 4 year old who claimed the rear as his area. Ask any new parent of twins about what a blessing it is.

Duct tape and bungee cords?

Unfortunately, the local child protective services frowns on the use of duct tape.
I would however ask if I am correct that the airbag is in the seat?

The airbag in the seat comes out and give protection to your shoulder and head. So, yes, you would not be able to use seat covers. You might be able to hang something off the back of the seat in the "kick zone". Think something like the beaded seats, but on the back. The airbag rips out of the seam that the tag is sewn into.

The "Curtain airbag deploys along the entire side of the vehicle and comes down to cover approximately the height of the windows

My local PepBoys had seat covers that were designed specifically for seat with airbag. I can't find it on PepBoys.com. Their web site kind of sucks when it comes to searching stuff. :roll:
