    Airbag Light

    My Airbag light keeps coming on but then will go off, then come back on a minute later and so on. Does this sound like a loose connection somewhere? I've had a quick play with the sensors under the seat but it's still doing it, where abouts are the other sensors so I can give them a check?

    Loosing power?

    Hi all, I've got a 1.9tdi 130 avant 5 speed.

Also in 4th and 5th I don't seem to...

    Thermostat Location

    On a 1.9tdi 130 I've had a look and it looks to me like it's just below the alternator? Is this right? Also is it a hard job to do on these or pretty straight forward?
