Hey everyone,
For quite some time now my passenger seat has had an side airbag fault and I’ve just gotten around to sorting out the problem.
I’ve bought a replacement seat (which was $800 cheaper then a new airbag and labour to install) but the seat is from a 2007 golf I believe. My Golf is a 2005 comfortline
The replacement seat I bought has two extra wires/plugs compared to the original and also the airbag fault light has not gone out in after I changed the seat with my replacement seat.
My question is, is this seat compatible with my golf, do I need to get a system diagnostic and reset the fault, or, could this seat also have a fault in it.
I’ve attached photos for comparison
Thanks a bunch in advance!
