C5 airbag fault.

PostSat Feb 02, 2013 7:01 pm

Can any one help with instructions as to how to access the passenger air bag to fix squib fault that is keeping service lit on.
MOT in a few weeks.

I have already soldered the connections in foot well passenger side.
Ruled out both chair air bags.
Ruled out drivers Airbag in wheel.

Computer shows stage 2 passenger airbag squib fault.

Does anyone have any ideas/instructions to gain access to the passenger air bag.

Yes, ruled out both seats and drivers airbag by disconnecting them and running diagnostic which showed these as new faults. Faults disappeared when these airbags where reconnected.. Even when the airbag is deactivated fault still shows and keeps service light on. Any ideas
MOT due in two weeks........
