New seats! How do I wire up the airbags?

    Hi guys, I've just won these on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330296142371

    I've been after a set of black/red mk4 golf recaros for ages, but havn't found any decent ones for sale. So seeing as the facelift A3 sport seats are just unbadged recaros, when I saw these in half leather, I couldn't resist!

    my only problem is, these are from a facelift car, and mine is pre facelift.

    I've heard the airbag plugs are different, but it's apparently an easy job to rewire.

    Do I need to rewire the seats, or the the plugs on my car?

    Does anyone know exactly what I need to do to get them fully working?

    Many thanks in advance

    Nick

    sounds like fun mate!

    I'm happy enough with these tbh, I wouldn't want full black leather S3 seats, as they arn't supportive enough being full leather, and the half alcantara seats like yours go for a fortune! I've loved the mk4 gti recaros for years now, and these are exactly the same seat, so I'm chuffed to bits.

    I'll let you know when they're in and fitted! Are you just driving around with the airbag light on at the moment?
