View Full Version : Letter from SEAT - side and head airbag equipment
Just thought I'd pre-warn some of you that you may/may not be receiving a letter from SEAT wanting them to check any Ibiza or Cordoba with Side and head airbag equipment, regarding a modification of the wiring to the airbag control unit. My car is on a 56 plate
The pin assignment may be interchanged in the wiring connector to the airbag control unit. This could lead to the activation of the side airbag on the opposite side of the vechicle to that intended.
My car is a 56 plate
Thanks for the heads up mate.
Any idea which reg numbers this refers to?
I've got an 06 FR TDi but no letter yet.
Not yet lodged as a recall from VOSA
I wonder how they got your details as recalls are done in collabaration
i see that fault is logged on the fabia tho.... on that vosa site.... :shrug:
Sometimes its up to the supplying dealer to issue recalls, it just depends on the severity of it.
This one is pretty serious and I'd expect it to be on recall soon.
Thats nice then, someone slams into the drivers door and your passenger gets mashed by the air bag on the other side. Nice one!
That must have been designed by the same c@ck who rated the TDI Cupra clutch, the front headlights and sized the rear brakes.
07 cupra, had my letter & was sorted today, 2 & a half hours to change a connector FFS very glad it was a recall and free!
maybee thay still have beer in the drinks machines in spanish factories?
I Had the letter the other day. Took my 06 fr tdi to seat they checked it over but said no problem with mine.
No letter from them for my 06 Cupra.
Now on VOSA: http://www.vosa.gov.uk/vosa/apps/recalls/searches/expand.asp?uniqueID=2EAA056EFAC634B28025732900496EB9&freeText=Blank I've a 56 Reference, but my chassis number seems to fall outside the affected range.
Mines been in now and needed to be changed too. Took about same 2 1/2 - 3 hours to sort out.
If your chassis number has 6LZ4R in it, you should have a look at that list!
Somehow, my 04 car has 6LZ5R in the chassis so I'm OK :D
