How to tell if there are side curtain airbags?


Recommended Posts

I dont know about the FG's but in my BF I have some tag on my seat indicating a side air bag, visible when I open door and look at the side of the seat.

 

In your case, check this but also check all the pillars, there will be a logo somewhere probably.

You can email Ford your VIN to get a complete listing of factory options.  I did it to ask what the police pack involved on my BFII.

I got a similar thing, but if you scroll a tad bit more down, you will get the rest of the info.

 

So I got FPV syspension, but less Premium brakes. why the I <3 Bananas did I pay for premium package then.

I feel so ripped off now.

Ohh and don't get me started on the 6 speed manual transmissions. I thought it was meant to have the TR6060??????

What with the standard engine cooling fan? do the FPV's have a special fan for their cars?

The fact the site thinks FGs have a T56 is enough reason for me not to use or recommend it!

 

And yeah high series brakes would be the bigger BF onwards ones they are just having a lendbut.   Since it's ambiguous by not listing sizes it's not worth much.

 

Email Ford :)

technically, FG's do have a T56...

A TR6060 is colloquially known as a "T56 Magnum" which is a stronger gearset in the same configuration as a standard T56. Of course the shifter mechanism alignment between the B-series T56 and the F-Series TR6060 is 90-degree offset, but also the shifter mechanism portion of the driveline is irrelevant of the gearbox model naming :)

If we are really getting technical a TR6060 is the OEM fitment so FG's Have a TR6060 not a T56.

 

A T56 Magnum is the aftermarket Version of the box which has the same shifter config as the previous Ford OEM and Aftermarket T56.

I have the Aeroflow short shifter for the FG fitted to my car, this should indicate that I have the TR6060?

Fingers crossed.

 

There use to be another website and I am pretty sure it was a ford one in Australia, where you could enter the vin number and it would show you what came from factory.

I thought I had book marked it at some stage, but apparently not. That website showed all the correct info for me, but I can't find it now. Ahh well.

Wow that link above is way to cool - just doing some checks on cars. Good if you want to do extra checks on prospective vehicles.  Nice one!
