    A4 estate avant airbag sensor

    I've recently bought a 2003 A4 avant estate and the airbag light is on, after having it plugged in they found it to be the drivers side front sensor and the passenger side sensor. How much am I looking at getting them replaced? Is it an easy job to DIY? I know i would have to disconnect the battery first.
    Its due an MOT on the 3rd of next month and don't have the funds to pay through the nose for a fix. Any help and advice would be appreciated.

    is it the seat air bags or the dash?

    its usually a bad connection on the plugs unplug clean reset and wait!

    I would disconnect the battery just in case

    ps whats your location? there maybe someone close to offer vcds to reset and scan for a few beer tokens

    The guy at the garage said theres one at the passenger side behind the trim where the seat belt is, is this true? And the other one is at the very front of the car next to the drivers headlight. So is it just worth taking it off and cleaning it first before buying new sensors? I live in Liverpool mate. Thanks for the advice
