My friends car got his airbags jacked, please help!

A good friend of mine who has been jobless for quite a few months now got his Prelude completely trashed last night by someone stealing his airbags.
Here is what happened is his words.
"Our car was broken into last night. The crack-heads stole the airbags. They cut a hole in the hood of the car, disconnected the battery so the alarm wouldn't go off. Then they expertly unlocked the driver's door and stole both the driver's and passenger's airbags. They even had a lookout. A recycling box (which wasn't ours) was dragged to our kitchen window so they could see if anyone was awake in the house."
Could someone please help me help him by letting me know where he could get a hood and replacement airbags? Does anyone know about a similar story to this? What was the outcome?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'd try a local honda wrecker. Ebay might have some, but airbags are an explosive and can't be shipped through the regular postage system, and a courier could cost a tonne of $

Re: My friends car got his airbags jacked, please help!

wait they cut a hole in the hood to disconnect the battery so the alarm wouldnt go off?!? i think he needs a new alarm that would go off when someone makes a hole in the hood

Re: My friends car got his airbags jacked, please help!

Pics or it dint' happen!


Airbags don't have a huge resale. And how the HELL did they get the drivers airbag without removing the steering wheel?
I call BS.
But here is a link anyway
http://www.safetyairbags.com/prelude-airbags.html

Whats the truth? You were street racing and hit something causing them to deploy?


Now the catalytic converter is a different story.........

It's really easy to remove the airbag from the steering wheel.... 2 T30 screws and that's it.

Re: My friends car got his airbags jacked, please help!

who cares about the story, this person needs help. save your judgements, reserve your laughter. point him in the right direction for the parts he needs and move on. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

If you have the parts he needs PM him. Thanks
