I guess Airbag Claims are paid in full...So 100% claim from Insurance. Getting it done from outside might not prove the best action in terms of safety and assurance...I'm sure your friend would like the device to work in the future if any untoward incident arises.

Then about the Body Damage, that could be done from outside, along with claim made to the insurance, which is 50 % on Plastics, 30 % or so along with Depriciated value for Metal and 100 % on Labour including Paint and body works.

Hey there, Im with wolfinstein on tht one. Doing repairs on saftey features from outside is not advisable. As for the body work you can get that done from the outside as it wil be much cheaper. Its usually company policy of all automobile companies to replace parts rather than repair them which is what leads to the extra cost. My NHC got damaged, which was quite average you would say, over the rear right fender when one of those gas cylinder guys on a cycle banged into my parked car. Honda gave me an estimate of 55k saying they would replace the parts. Since it was only body damage, Got it done for 5k form a garage in coloba. Did a DARN good job i must say!!! :-)

Only 50% is paid for all rubber nylon/ plastic parts, tyres and tubes, batteries and air bags.

Linkway Honda is good for body work, especially when they repair at their sister concern : Auto Hangar, Andheri.

8000 km old Accord. Don't take a chance with other workshop. Fixing airbags and all are not very simple jobs. Suggesting the same as GTO.

Besides, do not tarnish service/repair records. There will be question during selling this car.
