Anyone know how to turn this off. It has come on randomly for no
reason. Don't really want to pay the garage £££££ to run a full
diagnostic check then just flick a switch???
No other way.
You could purchase your own scanner to check out the reason why the air bag
light is on and possibly reset it yourself and save £££££ in the future with
this tool. ;-)

Yup, fully agree. When the airbag light is on, ALL of the Safety
Restraint System (SRS) components are disabled, including ALL
airbags, ALL seat belt pretensioners, ALL active head restraints,
and ALL electronic seat belt load limiters!
If you drive in the UK with the warning light illuminated, the
BiB would probably throw the book at you, and your insurance
would be void if you had an accident.
As others have stated, get the stored DTCs read, either at a main
stealer, a Bosch or VAG independent, or find a mate with VAG-COM.
It is most likely the connector under the front seat, but do NOT
fiddle with it when the ignition is switched on, nor turn on the
ignition with it disconnected.
