    Had this error on my A8 D3:
    Address 15: Airbags Labels: 4E0-910-655-84.lbl
    Part No SW: 4E0 910 655 HW: 4E0 959 655 G
    Component: Airbag 8.4E+ H10 0940
    Coding: 0431707
    Shop #: WSC 02313 785 00200

    1 Fault Found:
    01218 - Side Airbag Igniter; Passenger Side (N200)
    001 - Upper Limit Exceeded - MIL ON

    The fix is to raise the front passenger seat from the front so you can get to the connectors underneath. The smallest connector is the side airbag, simply remove this and spray electrical contact cleaner to both ends, let it dry and reconnect. Clear the errors using VCDS and they should not return. Try to earth yourself if you intend to touch the contacts just in case you trigger the air bag.

    Nice tip fella, I'm sure there are many people out there who've had the same issue and have gone back to Audi to get it sorted :D
