comment When do I need to replace my spare tire?
you can determine the age of a tire from the DOT code on the side. This is a legal requirement on tires sold in the US and common on tires worldwide. The last four digits are the week and year of manufacture - so 1314 would be the 13th week of 2014, or 24th-30th March 2014. see tyresforlife.co.uk/www/tyres_for_life_uk_en/themes/…

comment disable passenger airbag on Vauxhall Zafira
I guess the best bet is trawl around dealers and aftermarket shops. I'm also toying with the idea of sourcing just the transponder. I have seen second-hand infant seats on ebay, which I wouldn't use but if it's obvious how they work to disable the airbag (particularly if there is warning light when fitted) then it should be possible to remove the transponder and use it with the car seats I already own - and still have the airbag active when it is not in place.

Thank you, a very well thought out answer. I like your idea about the borderline safety aspect - that is a logical reason for preventing the vehicle owner disabling it without seat being fitted.

comment disable passenger airbag on Vauxhall Zafira
Not affecting the question, but to clarify my actual intentions: I'm willing to buy parts or pay money to a mechanic, dealer or store if required. I am not willing to do anything unsafe or illegal, nor travel internationally, nor buy a second hand/ebay seat. I'll accept answers that are very expensive (over £150) but I'm unlikely to spend that much. I'm not interested in infant (<16lb) seats.
