Yes, & disagree with the garage the air bag will not deploy on impact if the air bag light is on. The SRS system does a self test on start up & if a fault is detected in the system it will shut down as a whole indicated by the SRS/air bag light staying on.

I was told by the garage that the air bag would still release on impact even if the air bag light is on?

Hi. You should really get it repaired irrespective of whether it will pass with the “bulb” removed. It may save your life.

I have managed to find out that it is the drivers air bag that the error code relates to and it can't be cleared. I've been told the clock spring behind the steering wheel. My mechanic can only find a brand new one (at £315!!).
Can the bulb be removed in order for it to pass the MOT?
