    When changing the seats, you should always disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, so as to avoid the risk of the airbag being deployed and also the warning light will come on.

    It may well be connected properly butthe fault is stored in the ECU.Try disconnecting the battery for an hour or so to see if it makes any difference. If not you'll have to get VagCom to clear the code.

    Yeah I disconnected the battery as not to set the airbags off.
    I have checked the connectors and they are all plugged in correctly??
    Any ideas?

    Either will do it but normally use the earth otherwise there's a danger of the +ve lead touching the bodywork which can cause issues with sensitive electronics. Regardless, when you rechecked the airbag connections they may be OK but the fault will still be stored in the ECU.

    The airbags will be fine, but just try not to have an accident! You may or may not have your face rearranged by the steering wheel.
