i would try first reset srs codes with scaner you must have that to reset or it will not turn off than if the light comes back on i would need that error code and i can tell you what part to replace . with no error codes i cant tell you what to replace other than clear codes and test drive see if it comes back

Have tried to reset but with no luck, now reading frontal air bag stage 1 fault, is this the clock spring ?

Expert:  Enes replied 4 years ago.
Is either bad air bag or clock spring. The clock spring fails more frequent than air bag if self but both can trigger same code

Could not fix it failed the mot will now have to take it to a dealer

I have already said that the scan on the codes did not allow us to reset them, the car failed the mot and now i have to go to a dealer, your advice no matter how well intended was of no use to me.
