ha ha. I agree.
How do I know if my V70 has airbags on the rear doors?

Se supone que revises el sistema de SIPs en el 2009 para asi asegurar el buen funcionamiento de este..eso es lo que dice el cinturon.
Tu V70 tiene SIPS pero no se si tiene las bolsas de aire en los laterales, la proteccion esta en la forma de montar los asientos.

"The SIPS system worked by having the driver and passenger seat mounted on transverse steel rails, not bolted to the floor as per the standard configuration. In a side impact these transverse rails allowed the seats to crush a reinforced center console during a side impact. The system is designed to more widely distribute the energy in a side impact across the whole side of the car rather than having the B-pillar absorb it all. The SIPS side seat airbags were released in 1994 850 models and became standard beginning in 1995. In 1999, the SIPS system gained the use of the first true curtain style airbags, deploying from the headlining in a side impact. The curtain airbags now have become common in many cars and SUV's and are credited with saving many lives"

muchas gracias por los datos.
Ahora tengo que ver como saco el asiento del acompañante, ya qye ahi debajo esta el amplificador de la radio que le funcion mal un canal, y si no saco el asiento, este no sale.

Thanks for the data
Now I should know how I remove the passenger seat, because below is the radio amp that is working bad, one channel, and if i dont remove the seat, i cant remove the amp.

Thanks
