Unhappy Re: espace airbag, new mot proceedures march 13

As I wrote last week my 1998 Epace has had the airbag fault for 5 years, but we didn't bother with it. Our garage told us last year that the fault would be part of the MOT this year. Quinten excellent post was tried but it turned out to be the computer. It was sent away but could not be repaired. The garage has tried everywhere to get a computer, even France!. but I've just had a phone call from the garage to say that after a 2 weeks of searching they could not get one. They have been imformed by Renault that the computer is not longer available for my model, so a very good MPV is no longer roadworthy after Sunday. Wife is very upset as she loves 'my car'.
Is there anyway of fixing this fault?.
Can the warning be disconnected?.
Its always the same we have just spent out on new windows and doors so cash is very short(oap)so a new car is out of the question.
Currently in Gurney's garage:
1998 Espace RXE 2.2DT
