    Say you will WAIT with it when you take it. This has always worked for me as they look at it immediately and keep looking at your watch so they know you are keeping track of time!

    It should be a quick vag com scan if the light is on as a fault code will be stored with what fault it is.

    Hi there
    To check a airbag system you need to get it looked by Audi diognosis machine or similer.The fault is usally a poor connection to one of the side airbags,which requires a modification in which they remove a contact plug and hardwire it to the seat loom.To get to the plug you need to remove back seat cover,but note airbags systems should not be handeld a none specelised personel so best get it done at a dealer.Being a 04 A3 you might get some goodwill i hope this if is helpful.
