    I had an incident involving a rock, and the result was that the seat airbag deployed. Grrrreat.

    Now, ive found a replacement seat and can have it delivered etc etc.

    Fitting is not a problem, but how do i go about reconnecting the airbag part without setting it off?

    Cheers all!

    Just make sure the ignition stays off while you change the seat over, or you will get a fault code up.

    Cheers,

    Im a tad worried that I detonate the airbag whilst fitting it.

    I can erase the fault code/dash light no problem. (I like how a light is on the dash to remind me that my airbag has deployed...As if the ringing in my ears wasnt enough!)
