So the dates are when the Air Bags are supposed to be replaced? That must be pretty expensive --

Hmm I wonder how much of the mechanism is replaced? Just the explosive mechanism or just the sensors? Don't know what kind of explosives they use but from personal experience, I've seen bullets that were hand-loaded 35+ years ago still fire like new. I doubt they use smokeless gun powder but it's probably similar chemicals involved (Perhaps).

If you could use it as a negotiating tactic I'd say go for it. rel

  Subject: Re: [MBZ] Sticker on Used MB
Based on being notified of an age extension on an older MB, I have to assume that there is an "Use By" date for air bags. I have seen similar stickers on my cars. That being said, I've never heard of anyone ever replacing all of their air bags based on their age....

I was browsing some used MBs and noticed a sticker in the door frame of a ML320 
that read;
Steering Wheel -  06-2015
Instrument Panel - 06-2015
Left Front Door - 06-2015
Right Front Door - 06-2015
Left Front Door - 06-2015
Right Front Door - 06-2015
Left Roof Frame -----------
Right Roof frame ----------

I assume there are air bags in each location and each will need to be replaced 
at some point?  The sticker says they need to be replaced this month, correct?  
Seems  like that would require a large price reduction.  Don't recall the year 
of the ML  but I think it was between 2000 and 2005.  Is there a time frame 
when air bags need to be replace ?

Thanks
