    right.. disconnect the battery and leave the car for 15 mins.
    remove centre armrest assy from car..remove cupholder assy.
    there are two connections.. both with swingaway retaining clips..not which one goes where....

    it's held down with 3 nuts ( 10mm) and they are a git to get to..not where the earth wire tag goes as well.. remove old ECU and Install new ECU, following the notes on what goes where. note the advice on the ECU about which plug to connect first. refit cupholder/centre arm rest.

    The Airbag ECU needs programming now..which either needs vauxcom or tech2..so it's off to a freindly dealer or local garage to get the job finally done and the light put out....

    if you send yours away to get it reset ( if it will as they do suffer from board failure) then they may well wipe it..Worth a call to find that out first..
