It is illegal to do this without permission, and you could be leaving yourself open for a huge lawsuit. But it can be done under certain circumstances. Many people are concerned about the safety of people, especially children and small adults who sit in the front passenger's seat, because of the recent reports of deaths and injuries in low speed collisions caused by the deployment of the passenger's side airbag. Most of the deaths and injuries occurred because the occupant was not properly seated and using a seat belt at the time of the accident, or an rear-facing infant car seat was placed in the front seat, or the person weighed less than 80 lbs. The best action to take is to carefully follow the instructions for safe operation of the airbags. Always wear your safety belt, and keep kids buckled in the back seat at all times. But there is also a procedure you can follow to get an airbag disable switch installed. You need to fill out a form and get a certificate that allows you get a switch installed. NHTSA has a comprehensive page at their web site that has complete instructions, background information, and a copy of the form. The site is at

Don't do that!The airbag is a safety device which can save the life of the passenger in case of an accident!However,as the Corvette is a 2-seat car,if you are talking about a child,I strongly recommend you to install an aftermarket Passenger Airbag ON-OFF switch.That is possible even for older car models.Contact a Chevrolet dealer.
