Had a Y reg 106 in today, drivers and passengers seat airbags have been deployed,but airbag warning light functions correctly.

As the manual states ALL airbags must be present and correct(or similar) I issued the fail under "obviously faulty" (could have used the "missing" option too, as the remains had nearly all been cut out.)

The vehicle presenter returned, and whilst not irate, not happy and explained the seats were from a more upmarket model (306) ! and asked for advice on his next steps.

I suggested refitting the original seats (no longer available), he did come up with the "vehicle has been modified" ploy. The original never came with seat airbags, and the seats are obviously (when you look) not originally for the vehicle.

Any suggestions guys ?
