I'm not for one minute saying that removing the airbag or its badge will set it off.There's no such thing as "doing it right" when playing around with airbags
course there is ive had mine off 3 times so if you do it right you will make it go off??????.
commen sense is a word that comes to mind here.
its like playing with fire it will burn you 1 day.
it will take more than a badge to sett it off imo.
If the airbag is removed and refitted in the way it was intended, there is no problem. If there wasn't a proper way to remove handle, store and refit airbags, why do you think they have introduced the law that only qualified persons are allowed to do it???????
What I am saying is that is is exceptionally dangerous to play about with an airbag by changing anything from how it originally was manufactured. I'm not saying that removing the badge could set it off (unless the screwdriver the OP was using slips and shorts out the firing mechanism)-- what I am trying to point out is the danger of incorrectly reattached badges if the airbag is deployed in an accident
Until you see the power of an airbag explosion first hand under controlled conditions, you truly have no idea of the damage they can do to you.
