I went to get my front passenger side tire change and the guy showed me the button that you have to turn off before jacking it up and after changing the tire he didn’t turn it back on. I went about 20 miles and the airbag shot from under the car. Did him not turning that button back on cause this problem?
Do you

Good afternoon,

Most likely it did. The air leaked out of the bag and it collapsed. When that happened it came out of its mount. You will need to check the vent solenoid for any damage as well.

I attached the procedure below for you of the replacement.
