Question: looking for a ballpark repair amount.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. My airbags deployed yesterday during a little fender bender. I'm searching online to get an idea of what it will cost me to get the two front airbags replaced. My bumper is just cracked so I'm not doing anything with that.

A shop will need to look at it to see what needs replacement, so there's no good way to give an estimate for this type of problem without seeing the vehicle.
