    Which model is it? I'll have a look on the service site to see if there are any recalls or modifications to the bracket.

    And have you dismantled and re-wired the airbag connector under the seat? That's a common issue on Pugs - the connection gets kicked by the feet of rear passengers.

    This is the Citroen Xsara which is an x reg 2.0hdi

    I think the problem with the zorst is that one of the rubbers is too thin on the rear box and is allowing the box to come across and the tail pipe to tap the bumper, i just need to deal with it.

    I haven't rewired the air bags yet, which was something I had to do on my last 405, for the reasons you describe! I've just wiggled the connectors and the light goes out on the next start... I need to deal with it properly, but ultimately I'm a bit lazy.

    Believe me, it's a common one on Vauxhalls too...heh...but it knocked a significant chunk off the asking price of my Astra when I negotiated that..well, that and the EML lamp (EGR Valve value out of range - or "stuck until you belt it with a hammer").
