Hope someone can point me in the right direction. Have made a mess in my MKI Coupe.

Dashboard airbag, steering wheel airbag and drivers seatbelt, all exploded when crashed my car. Wouldn't know where to start taking the dash out. Have seen a quick guide, steering wheel bag seems simple enough, hopefully same for the seatbelt. Have found a kit online to resupply all these parts also including a module, which i have no idea of, but imagine this will be some master link between them all. Can someone direct me to a dash refitting and will I need to get my car software reset once all the bits have been changed? Unfortunately the steering wheel bag broke the windscreen as well >.< Thanks for help

It's going to be cheaper to scrap that than repair.

I agree. Given the o/s damage and the complexities of reinstating the airbags, unless you have the time and skills to undertake these repairs yourself it will be more economical to scrap your vehicle. The repairs are likely to cost more than an 11 year old vehicle is worth.

My aim would be to change it myself, have a friend who's a demon on cars (look for sofa/4 door corsa vs skyline on youtube) who will assist me. Surprisingly the plastic wing is intact, small impact on bumper. The kit for airbags less than £2oo, just leaving the bonnet, which I would just straighten out for now and the windscreen, which apparently insurance should aide with, keeping the costs down. Life in the olde dog yet. Please help me turn this around.
