    So I need to replace the airbag controller to get through the next mot and i just want to check that the code that i need to read off the old unit is called 'soft coding' in VCDS (highlighted in the snip) and that this is the code that I enter when the replacement unit is installed using 'Recode 07' (also highlighted below)

    thanks

    Turns out it didn't need recoding as it came out of the v6tdi and it all just seems to work. Off to get an mot this week.

    Yes it's great when it just works! Does a dodgy airbag controller affect the seat belts?

    No i had a front end bump that deployed the pre-tensioners hence replacing them so your seatbelts will be fine, well unless you have a bump then you will need another ecu aswel as seatbelts lol :) !!!!
