    Don't suppose anyone knows how to turn the airbag off on the passenger side of a Zafira? I really want to start having Vinnie in the front with me :flower:

    Check your insurance too as some insurance companies will make your insurance void if you turn the front airbag off x

    I have a Meriva and can't be turned off either. My friend was told it would cost approx £100 to be done!! With my son we had a different car & had him in the front for a while (3 door car, so easier!) I actually found it a major distraction having him the front.

    Oh, i didn't think i'd have to pay to have it switched off. I've heard some cars have a switch/key to disable it. Didn't know that about the insurance either. Vinnie can stay in the back then LOL

    Thanks for your replys girls :) xx

    Meriva owner here as well :waves: I bought a mirror (from Halfords, I think) to hang on the head rest of the back seat so I can see what LO is up to all the time :)

    Even with the airbag turned off, there is a chance it may go off in a crash.

    I have a corsa and was told by vauxhall dealer that airbag can't be turned off however you can buy vauxhall car seats you can use in front as they have a transponder that disable airbag when seat is in use.
