How to verify Honda Civic Hybrid 2003 has rear airbags.

Postby lyord » Fri Apr 24, 2009 11:46 am

I am thinking of buying a used Honda Civic Hybrid 2003 that the owner claims has rear side airbags. How do I actually verify that the car are installed with those airbag, e.g. are there some documentation or papers that I can refer to? Thanks.

I have a '03 Civic EX with Side Air bags for the front. They didn't come with rear airbags.



Look for "SRS" that indicates Side airbags. Mine are in the side "very noticeable" of the front seats. It's a rectangle piece of plastic marked "SRS".



Good luck.

You might want to try asking some owners to be sure:

Considering that the Honda press release for the 2003 HCH only lists the dual-stage driver and passenger front airbags and driver's and passenger's side airbags as standard equipment, with no note about rear airbags as an available option, it is highly possible that your seller is confused. (It's always possible that the seller has a one-off VIP vehicle, but unlikely.)

Normally there's a SRS label wherever the airbags live, so if you don't see any label either just above the rear windows or by the side of the rear seats, it is highly unlikely that any airbags are in the rear area.

It may say on the manual in the glove box. If not you will have to check with the dealer as to how to know, Honda doesn't encode it in the VIN as some others do.

According to my research side curtain air bags for the row 2 passengers was not available in 2003 0r 2004 for Honda Civics. This option was available in 2004 for the Accord sedan only.

This information can be verified by the original factory sticker or even running the VIN through a Honda service department computer.

Agree with maestroliang. Im on the same boat the last time around but i have consulted the dealership about it. They ask me for the VIN and give it to them. don't really have the idea about it. Anyway, there are used parts being sold to the public just in case you'll gonna need it in the future. Some online parts store are actually making some great offers for it.

Hi,
In this case you have to contact any Registered Honda Dealer they will definitely guide what procedure you need to follow.
So ASAP go to your nearest Honda dealer or you can find them online through help of Internet.

Thank you.
