Alfa 156 2.4JTD 54 plate airbag light, which are the connectors in the boot?

As the title guys, I've got 156 2.4JTD Lusso. A few months back the red airbag light came on, I took it to a Alfa specialist and they advised me it was a loose connection in the boot.

Anyway a few months on and its back on. Before I take it back to the garage I wanted to check the connection myself. I've found a couple of yellow cables with pink connectors on the end, are these the connectors? If so how do they unclip? Also should the battery be dis-connected prior to un-cliping?

What other connectors should I look at?

Thank you in advance.

i believe all the airbag cables are yellow, when my light came on it was the boot connector at the side, had to pull the carpet back just under the parcel shelf. i just unplugged and reconnected it (with battery disconnected!) and it went away

There are also connectors under the front seat, and towards the bottom of the B pillar which seem to cause people problems.

You'll need to hook up a laptop to find out which connector or other component is at fault, but yes the battery should be disconnected for at least 15 minutes before you dream about touching it.
