    Hi my mates car has had drivers side seat and curtain airbag deployed. A3 TDI 5 DOOR SPORTBACK
    They no doubt will get replaced,but theres a few question id like to ask:

    Both front seat belts have locked.........can they be unlocked and reused?
    Can the driver seat (half leather) be repaired,once airbag is refitted?
    Can airbags out of a 3 door model be used?...IE The seat airbag?
    and finaly.......anyone know a top sh** hot bodyshop that dont cost the earth?.........in stoke on trent area?

    The seatbelts will have to be replaced. I think that they have a sort of explosive charge mechanism that goes off in the event of an accident, instantly tightening them and rendering them unusable - so I'd hazard a guess at you needing new seat belts and whatever else goes with it.
