147 Air bag light
Due to two of the retaining clips breaking on the passenger side air bag panel (on the dash) this panel has been loose for a few weeks and just resting in position. I assumed this was maybe caused by the heat of the sun as it was a real hot day and i have never touched anything in this area.
I have only been able to get replacement clips recently but have not yet fitted them.
However, I have just noticed that the airbag light is on!!!! I am not sure how long this has been on but i am pretty sure i would have notcied it.
My questions are as follows:
i) Will the vehicle pass the MOT with this light on but panel secured
ii) Will refitting the panel solve the fault or is it likely to be something else IE what caused the light to come on?
Why would the panel being loose cause this to come on
iii) If i resolve the problem will the light automatically turn off or will i require a diagnostics tool.
iv) Could it be a coincidence that a connector has come loose and caused this to happen at the same sort of time??
