    hi roof airbag quite easy first you will need to remove headlining then the airbag is held by 4 or 5 small blots and 1 plug.

    as for seat i would think you need to dismantle the seat and undo the bolt.

    Possibly. I think it depends on the age of the car - early cars have an airbag ECU that can't be reset - it has to be replaced after airbag/seatbelt pre-tensioner activiation. Also, I don't think you can de/re-program the early ECU's so swap between cars either.

    The ECU in later cars can be reset after activation but I'm not sure whether they can be moved between cards.

    There's always airbag ECU reset services - if you trust your life to someone you find on somewhere like eBay.
