Airbag light needing to GTF before MOT

With my MOT just around the corner (25th June) and new legislation, I'm in need of assistance and somehow need to get rid of the airbag light before the MOT.

I'm thinking if I could get hold of the cable and software then go from there. Any ideas chaps?

Thanks in advance
Dan

Check the connections under the driver,s seat if not you will need to get the system reset .

It is now Greg. New legislation brought in for this year I'm afraid.

Oh ****! That'll have caused alot of grief with gtv owners! I wonder how easy it is to remove the bulb? Either that or out with the black tape!

I know of a few who have done the old trick and got their MOT. Just take it to a non-alfa specialist MOT centre.

.

As far as I am aware, this change to the MoT has been delayed. Airbag light on is still just an advisory.

Also worth checking under the passenger seat. There will most likely be a white choc block type connection which if loose causes the problem. Worked for me...!

Don't believe airbag light being on is a failure yet, mine was on when I had mine MoT'd in March. MoT Center said it wasn't a requirement. Any doubt phone them.
