air bag going off for no reason





does anyone know where i can get a new passenger seat from for my clio 172 (2000) the air bag went off when i was going 20 mph. I spoke to renault and they said they have never heard of this happening before. While i was waiting in the cue a lady came into renault with the same problem they now want around a £1000 to repair the damage. If this has happened to anyone else please e-mail me on mailto:dale_22@blueyonder.co.uk">dale_22@blueyonder.co.uk. cheers
 


Ring Renault specialist breakers and ask for matt he should be able to sort you out. Id think a whole new seat is the better option plus you will probably need a new airbag module (if you dont have an airbag warning light then you might not).

Give Renault Uk a call Ive heard of this happening before it happens to other manurfactuers cars as well.
 


Give Renault UK a call they might be willing to pay up depending how old the car is etc.

01254 386661 < for the breakers though

How old is the car. Will be an expensive bill to replace it all, its not just the seat that needs to be replaced when the airbag goes off.
 


sh*t thats scary!!!

Imagine if your passenger had been getting something out of the glove box, goodbye neck!!

Yep, very poor Arnold Clark in Wigan, only after making money and no interest in good service. NEVER use the body shop. v. poor. I use to travel to Dutton James in ST Helens. Much better.

Why not spend the £1000 buying a set of 2nd hand 172 cup seats and get a leather retrim in the colour of your choice with the change? (cup seats dont have airbags to worry about).

Or alternatively, that kind of money would buy a really nice set of buckets and subframes?

Insurance wouldnt be happy - think they load the price big style if you remove airbags.
