Air bags

I've got a 2003 Ranger Edge. My kid took out the right side and almost turned it over. Both airbags deployed and the drivers smacked her in the eye. I want to put the new ones in myself. Any advise/instructions would be appreciated.

buy a manual to tell ya how to do it. Unplug battery first. Then remove fuse. Make sure you press on the brakes while unplugged to guarantee no juice.

Although honestly nothing bad will happen. It's just scary to think it might go off.

The crash sensors in the front may also need to be changed .
