Re: should have looked before we leaped

Well I must admit I like the car with the hardtop on and as I was saying to LRB, the drive I have to work and back is through some dodgy areas, I'd probably end up with a facefull of chips and mushy peas so don't feel inspired to have the top down! Now if we can organise a trip down to South of France again to visit my mum and dad the hard top will definitly come off... That depends on finances at the moment.

I think I will take your advice though and take the hard top off one sunny weekend just to make sure everything is ok in there!

HI Orange

What did you do about your airbag light in the end? I've got to get mine sorted out now. Did you have to go to a dealer or might my local garage be able to do it?

Thanks

Think we need to verify the cause first and check the wiring under the seat..

If you take it to a dealers and the wiring is still not right the light will just come on again wasting your 40 to put it out.

Just thinking....as you never unplugged any of the wiring a reset might work by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. It's a long shot but might work.

Re: should have looked before we leaped

Hi ~Alan

Thanks for the tip about the battery. I'll try that. I wonder if Keith cutting the hardtop cable could have caused any current in the rest of the car? It does seem that the airbag is particularly sensitive. We didn't touch the cable but the seat was backwards and forwards quite a bit while he was sorting the hard top.
I'll let you know what happens.

Re: should have looked before we leaped

MRI came back as prolapsed disc crushing the nerve socket just waiting for specialists to call for an appointment....

Re: should have looked before we leaped

How else would you get paid, you could always swap an MRI for a few hours of project management

Re: should have looked before we leaped

Hmmmm, currently 'between' assignments (out of work), there is another 15 days on the horizon but no PO at the moment

Actually beginning to feel a bit apprehensive about work/income for the first time..................although things have a way of sorting themselves out.

France 
Re: should have looked before we leaped

LRB and ALAN D

Move to France, - I had a prolapsed disc last year and they had me in hospital the same day for the MRI tests and the operation was carried out three days later

Not a pleasant op, but at least the pain goes away after a few days.

8mths later and I still can't lift anything heavy, but movement is improving daily.

Best of luck guy's
