after getting the airbag light come up constantly i got the car scanned to find the problem 01221 which is the drive side airbag crash sensor.
my mot is due this month and with the unfortunate timing of a few other large outlays every penny counts so i don't really want to splash out 80 pounds to the stealers for a new sensor.
ive noticed a lot of sensors on ebay that look exactly the same but vary, very slightly with the orientation of the arrow on the sticker and a letter after the part number.
i was wondering if any of these would work as a direct replacement even though there are very slight differences on the sticker?
here is my crash sensor for reference:
sorry its not the sharpest of pictures! if this was anything else other then the airbag system i would go ahead and give it a go.
here is a ebay link to a selection of crash sensors that look identical:
