Disable passenger side airbag


Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Engine (type, size, modifications): Stock; Total Mileage: 42,000; Transmission: Tiptronic;

I recently purchased a used 2001 Boxster S. I am mounting a rallye computer on a removable "board" in front of the passenger/navigator (for use on TSD rallies).I discovered that Porsche makes a child restraint seat for the passenger side that comes with a special key switch for disabling the passenger side air bag.(An airbag exploding could injure a child.)I would like to disable the passenger side airway when running rallies for the same reason. (An airbag exploding could propel the rallye computer into the face of the navigator.)My local Porsche dealer will sell me a complete child restraint system (for about $500), but will not sell me only the special airbag key switch. I do not want or need a child restraint seat.Where can I obtain this airbag disable key switch by itself?Is there some other (simple) way to disable the airbag when I am running rallies?Thank you,//Keith McMahan//
