The two square black boxes in front of the radiator, are they air bag sensors?

Also, the plastic canister thing inside the left fender, what is it?

Thanks, Rick


Also, does anyone make fake air bag inserts?

Yes, the 2 square black boxes in front are airbag sensors. The thing in the left fender I believe is the charcoal canister. As for the airbags, it isn't that hard to take them apart, take out the squib and the bag, and then re-install the center horn pad and the passenger cover panel with nothing inside them.

The black canister thing in the passenger fender is the charcoal canister. It will have a purge valve attached to it, which in turn is attached to some emission hose and a hard line that goes to the back of the TB on the 96-97's. The purge valve opens on startup for a few seconds and then closes I think until next startup.
