My clio (1998) 1.9D failed its MOT due to airbag light staying on (indicating the system was not working according to my mechanic).
He has promised to look into/quote and rectify the fault as I need a legal car!
He went straight for the dashboard faults and did not mention anything at all about the possibility of loose wiring under the front seats.
He also has not mentioned anything about testing the systems
relating to this area of the car.
He has warned me if it is the 'whole system' that needs replacing this will be in the region of £375 + labour.
I am so annoyed as he is charging by the hour and has had my car for over a week.
I am about to suggest we take the car to Renault as it might be that he does not have the necessary diagnostic kit.
Reading this forum has brought me to the conclusion the first thing he should have done is take the seats out and check all the wiring.
I am so upset as I thought I had found a reliable mechanic. (they are far and few between in my area!).
