I have the same issue although mine is a bit more obvious.
I have just bought a leon, just 6 months old but it has had a small bump at the front.

this small bump was enough to deploy both steering wheel and dash board airbags.

I have priced them, but got different prices to you, the steering wheel was something like 670 plus vat, but the dash including airbag was about 470 plus vat.

Although no solution to not spend money I do know there are specialists who only deal with airbags. i.e Buy in kits.

I have been told to try http://www.carsparefinder.co.uk and another car parts company I can't rember name at the moment.

I was told there are suppliers on these systems that have parts in stock even for newish cars.

If you have already found a cheaper solution as this is an old post please let me know.

Once the light is on, you need to clear the error within the airbag ECU. disconnecting and reconnecting the battery could cause an error to be logged.



Did you get a fault scan done?

Yes I scanned the codes and erased them, but they always came back.It was the usual code for the passenger side air bag.
