    This can be done with vag-com, however, i suggest you get the dealer to do it! Something like that, if it goes wrong could be bad. Shouldnt cost much

    Someone on clubgti has just been quoted £150 at his local dealer!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Surely its just a few mins with VAG-COM?? Although I've never been near the airbags with my version. I've heard you can set them off?

    Don't you believe it!
    Stealers charge between 0.5 - 1.0 hours labour for this, £35 - £75, just for plugging it into a computer for 5 minutes. Also, they are reluctant to do it unless you have the paperwork from when it was deactivated.

    Try an Audi specialist with the VAG diagnostic computer. I think that its a simple operation to re-activate the air bag and warning light on the dash should confirm that it is active i.e. the airbag light will go out and stay out, not flash 5 times before going out each time you start the car.
