i did the pretensioners as suggested as this came up on a diagnostics test, then the faults were cleared on the ecu .

it still comes up with the airbag fault.

Then i remembered i paid years ago to access the renault database and i downloaded all the wiring diagrams for the espace to sort out an alarm fault i had.

i know its not right but after all the faffing about and no faults on the ecu being shown i ended up disconnecting the dashboard trigger wire that says there was a fault. took 10 mins and no more airbag alarm. at least it will go through the mot
