Question Passenger Side Air Bag Location

Can someone tell me the location of the passenger side air bag on a 2011 Acura TSX? I found out that there is a recall on the airbags for this car and I'm wondering how much damage the tech's have to do at Honda to change the airbag. Does anyone know if the whole dashboard has to be removed or is something less invasive like them removing the glove box? Any info would be appreciated. Thx

Only took 45 minutes so do not think they had to take the dash off.

Glovebox and side panel come off. 45 minutes and done. You can speed it up by taking all your crap out of your glove box.

Passenger front airbag is the trouble one

Weird I never remember doing that recall. side is easy, the front one requires dash removal. How do I know? My car was salvaged. Itís a real pain let me tell you. Canít imagine some tech not messing it up when they somehow managed to mess up my driver curtain airbag when I took it in for recall. Now it doesnít sit flush, not a big thing but it should have been an easy job.

I've been getting calls to come into the dealership again for my passenger airbag. It looks like some were potentially installed incorrectly and we have to go back in to get them inspected/reinstalled. Though they didn't say it in these words when talking to the dealership on the phone. Maybe its just location dependent but its annoying either way.
