Air Bag Recall- Remove Tune?

Hello

I received my notice for the air bag upgrade.

Should I change my tune back to stock prior to dropping the car off at the dealer for the repair?

Thoughts???

I would under the safe not sorry rule. I don't see anything in your sig that will cause issues if you return to stock.

I was told it's a 15 minute swap out. Doubt they'll even look at the tune.

Hello

I was told by my local dealer that I had to leave the car and it would take 3-4 hours.

I guess it is a back burner repair for them.

I am waiting until the dealer gets their new showroom completed before I take mine in. Never can tell what I may find when I go in.

The service manager I've gotten to know pretty well locally told me the recall should be a fairly quick fix. ~1hour. As far as the tune, it shouldn't be an issue especially if you mention it beforehand, but it can't hurt to err on the side of caution if you choose to not say anything. Better to spend 15 minutes to de-tune / retune your car, than to take the odd chance some new tech gets in there and bricks your setup because they didn't know.

Here's my thought on it. You're going in to have an airbag recall performed which only involves removing the old airbag and installing a new one... what part of replacing the airbag involves hooking up the Ford software to check if the engine has been tuned?

Are you concerned about them knowing you've tuned the car or not honoring the recall? Once you've tuned the PCM had a flash count. There's no going back after you've tuned they will always know. Nevertheless a tune does not void your warranty. It does void any damage the tune may have caused.
