VW Beetle Fronts drivers airbag G283 sensor


Registered User
Basically im after a crash sensor for my gf's beetle. its a 2003 1.6 Convertible with the air bag light on.
Had the code checked and it read

01738 - Crash Sensor for Front Airbag: Drivers Side (G283)
004 - No signal/Communication.

Is there anywhere online i can buy the sensor from or is it a VW dealer only part??

I would check with VW to see if it was a recall, It was in America.
If it isnt they are not that much to buy on Ebay.
