    Default pay to fix or not?

    had my airbag/srs light diagnosed today, turns out its a passenger seat tensioner and drivers side rear seat tensioner!!! really annoyed me that the light just wouldnt clear!!

    i checked and traced all wires and have used electrical cleaner on every plug and still it wont clear.

    now i havent got the skill to change pre-tensioners especially the pasenger seat, looks to me like the whole seat unit needs to come out to get to tensioner.

    Question is would you pay hundreds to get them changed or would you live with the light??

    opinions and advice appreciated.

    i really appreciate the offer matey and i might take you up on it later on but you are very far and i got a heavy right foot so the 2.0T use up half the cost of fixing in fuel alone lol

    do you know if the passenger seat actually needs removing to re-fit new ones??

    had a look at the rear one and looks very easy (one knut?) so might have a crack at it myself, how do you get the multi coloured connecter off the ohter end though??

    yeah the seats are best off out to fit the connector will have a section that needs to be either pushed in or pulled out aint got one to hand to look at.

    basically:

    1: remove battert leads wait 30 mins (safety first)
    2: remove seat - 2 x torx bolts at rear of runners lift rear of runner slide back slightly undo the main connection under the seat first (a bit slides to the side to unlock) and remove seat.
    3: disconnect the pretensioner from the seat loom
    4: unbolt the old pretensioner bolt in the new one
    5: reconnect the pretensioner to the seat loom
    6: refit the seat and its loom
    7: reconnect the battery
    8: light should self extingish but may need to be cleared via computer

    This is very very easy to do, as said, the seat is only held in by two bolts and the pretensioner by one (plus the wiring etc of course).
