The postage and carriage on airbags can be very expensive due to their classification and not all carriers are licensed to transport such items. In the interest of your safety and for the safety of others I strongly recommend that you have any repairs to the airbag system carried out by an authorised dealer.

To be honest. I didnt know that. The airbag is coming in normal post as far as I am aware. I certainly dont think its classification as an explosive device is widely known, thats for sure. I will be replacing the sensor too, and was going to fit the equipment with the car powered down anyway. I have a friend in a Renault dealership. I think I may have a word with him about fitting it. It was activated by a side swipe on the drivers side.

Thanks for the info,
