    I would say yes to the tech 2 question,what i've read anyway......

    As for the tailgate,i think i remember someone else having the same problem, a switch in the mechanism,i think,needs adjusting,cant remember exactly how,do search and it should come up........

    As above. Yes to the Tech 2. Had the airbags gone off? If so, you'll need to replace, and have reprogrammed, the airbag module.

    Tailgate - you just need to adjust the slam plate (the bit on the boot lip) so that it closes sufficiently without the light coming on.

    Aren't the airbag sensors just behind the front bumper so have they been damaged?

    You dont know the exact whereabouts of these do you, the damage to the front was only the bumper and dent in the front bumper bar

    cheers

    the crash sensors are on the side of the head lights on the front panel

    and with the air bag light still on you might have to send the airbag module of and get it re-set. as this is what i have to do its about £60 to get done
