Replace Airbag on 2005 Volkswagen Jetta

I dented my buddies passenger air bag cover and i told her i would replace it. I understand that i would have to purchase the whole airbag. Is it easy to install? I am no pro but i can fix things, I replaced my own radiator and altenator for example. How would I go about doing this?

Before replacing the air bag ensure the battery is disconnected for ten minutes or so or the airbag could deploy. Autozone have some repair manuals for popular vehicles on line for free, I think you need to sign up and give them your email address. There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. Its best to have the proper procedure and torque specs to do a proper repair.
