Location of Air bag backup power supply.

I have a 91 2.3L (with electronic ignition and A/C) does anyone know where
to start my search for the backup power supply as the instructions indicate
it must be unplugged. I have also read elsewhere that you can leave the
negative lead to the battery off for 20 minutes to completely drain it - I
am less confident of this option?

I need to replace the clock spring in the steering column.

The airbag module can be found above the radio, it is a bright blue box
about 4"x6" and has two connectors.
Remove the battery cable, unplug airbag module, remove airbag, remove
and replace clock spring assembly and reinstall in reverse.

Re: Location of Air bag backup power supply.

Here's a fairly decent tech site that includes a lot of air bag stuff:
http://www.veryuseful.com/mustang/tech/

For the record, Tim knows his stuff and is absolutely great to deal
with. I bought an air bag module and stock pulleys from him not too
long ago, and both items came boxed in bubble wrap (the pulleys were
also freshly painted) and were in perfect condition.

Tim is my first choice if I need anything for the LX.
