    Which one do you want disabled? To do it properly it's a tech 2 job. You can also disconnect the battery for 30mins then you can safely unplug and remove any airbag from the car without fear of it going off.

    Drive into a wall at 30mph. Permenantly disabled then.

    I hope you're just talking about the passenger side one, because if you mean them all I'm pretty sure your car would be illegal.

    If you mean the passenger one because of a childseat?
    Not possible, unless you ordered the car with 'smart airbag' and a Vx isofix child seat with transponder.

    As sig63 has said matey.

    Also if you physically disconnect it yourself watchout for your insurance company if you ever make a claim (god forbid).

    I did this in my last Vec B but all the dealer could do was disable all of them. So i just removed the passenger one connector but hasd to put up with the warning light on for 2 weeks

    The pessenger one, coz of a childseat, i don't have to worry about inssurance here, it is just the child .

    If there is a fuse, a plug, anything other than physically removing it, would be great.

    Disconnect battery, wait 30 mins, disconnect air bag, reconnect battery. Job done. Not sure if it will put the warning light on or not
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
