Golf 5 GTi Airbag Light

Postby Nilesh01 » Fri Sep 07, 2018 1:44 pm

I was driving and my airbag light came on, sent the car to VW and they replaced the connectors charged me R2K and a few km's later the light came on again. Took the car back and the quoted me R14k to replace the airbag. Got the car back and the light is off again. Any suggestion on what to do?

Did they do a scan to see which airbag was giving the error?

If it is the side airbag in one of the seats, your best bet would be to bypass the connector under the seat by joining the wires directly.

I did this on my MK5 GTi and the airbag light has not come back since.
