Re: Renault Clio - Interiors - Air Bag Fault Lights

Serv light +airbag light both lit on the dash.

I started to fiddle with them as below and basically just tightened them a little and BAM no more lights!!!

Thanks guys

This should cure the problem of the dodgy Airbag/pretensioner connector contacts.. A very common problem in the Clio..
