    Default airbag light

    Hi everyone I was wondering if I could get some help. I have my car booked in for an MOT on Thursday but I remember being told the airbag light on my dash will need to be extinguished this time around as they've stopped passing them. I presumed my mate was gonna sort it for me as it's him whose taking it for the MOT but he's said he won't have time to do it. He was going to send it to these guys http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...-/320448209230 and said it would help if i could get the module out and send it off for him asap (ie today) and get it back in time for the MOT.

    2 questions really

    1. can i still drive the car without it and

    2. where is it and how do i get it out?

    thanks

    Joss

    I have it booked in to the diagnostics place on Thursday. Hopefully the will be able to sort it without replacing the unit. In principle it just needs the crash data clearing and re-setting but I've read there is a common fault which means it needs a replacement unit so fingers crossed it's not that.

    Thanks for the offers of help BTW chaps
