Will an airbag from a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES fit into an 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer ES?

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer ES and am looking for an airbag, I found one on ebay but it says it is for a 03-05… does anyone know if it will fit. HELP PLEASE.

NO…You do not want to mix and match airbag components. They are very model and year specific.
Check out this website.
The purpose of this website and company is to help people diagnose and repair airbag problems themselves without taking them to the dealer (if possible). It offers all the photos and data you need to understand your airbag system, read the codes and reset the light. It’s a pay site, but it certainly is worth the money ($14.95 for 1 day full access)
There’s a place to check if your car is listed on the home page
This is quite an extensive website with pictures, descriptions and factory fault code charts as well as a working demo @ http://www.airbagsolutions.com/demo.aspx that shows just how easy these repairs can be. Although it does not give step by step instructions, there is enough information in the pictures that most people can do it themselves.
Lots of insurance companies and body shops use this site for the information they need to repair your car.

I hope I’ve helped you

See the link below. I have the pictures of the 2005 and 2006 steering wheels of the Lancer ES. They are completely different.



The proper sized 18 inch tire and rim combo for your Lancer ES would be 18×7.5 or 18×8 sized rims with 215/35-18 sized tires. Your suggested size of 225/50-18 is both too wide and too tall.

Depends where it is located…
Steering wheel, dash, door, etc.
