Default Air bag module location? 2000 ssei

Can anyone tell me where the air bag module is located on the 2000 bonneville ssei? I bought a wrecked one and am having trouble loacating it, most newer GM cars are under passenger side seat but apparently not on the bonneville.

Thanks for any help

in the picture in my FSM if looks like it is under the center console, but it says you have to take the front split bench out (take the center console out since you don't have that) then remove the rear carpet and you can get to it

thanks for the info!...Ive replaced bags in other pontiacs with no problems but this one has been a major pain in the butt! pulling the dash pad on a bonneville is no fun!

Very true, its not the part you want to take out but everything else you need to take out to get to it

This might be a long shot, but could it be this here?

This is from my 03' SSEi, so I don't know that the placement would be the same, nor do I know that is what that particular module is. There are so many modules in these cars!

Thats a side impact sensor, one on each side that set off the side impact air bags in the seats, but you have the rear carpet out and it should be easily accessible under that center console
