    replacing seat belt pretensioners on a clio, please help

    hey all, basically the belt pretensioner has activated on my passenger side seat of my clio, how do you reset it/ replace it safely without deploying the airbags? will this turn the airbag light off on the dash aswell?

    ive heard to discnnect the battery and leave for 30mins will make it safe, however if i do this i will loose my radio as i dont have the code for it


    any help welcome, need it sorted asap, thanks

    The computer does not need to be replaced contrary to what people (including me previously) say, i've got the renault airbag manual for the clio it states that the computer is good for 4 detonations before it needs to be replaced. It also says that they can be unlocked easily enough with CLiP which seems rather strange when renault tell you theres nothing that can be done and you need a new one at instead of an hours labour.

    New seat for the pretensioner and sent the airbag computer to be reset (search ebay).

    Also has it got a side airbag? You'll need a new seat anyway then because they distort the seat frame when they detonate.

    replaced a few pretensioners, you should disconnect the battery but u culd chance not doin that to save ur code but thats ur choice. i've done it and got away with it, lucky i guess! the air bag light wont automatically go out you will need to plug it in to do that at any garage with the software, also if you dont mind drivin around with the light on the bags will still detonate with the light on! the tensioners r easy enough to do you can disconnect the electrical plug in two places under the seat and on the tensioner other than that its one bolt to do a 40 torx i think!

    so basically , i should buy a new or used pretensioner from ebay or breakers, disconnect battery, unplug and remove old one, and put in new one, reconnect battery. then get the light switched off.

    will i defo need a new seat as mine seems fine and it goes back and forward fine?

    p.s thanks for all the replys!

    If it hasn't got a side airbag then not you can keep the original seat. Although sometimes the cost of a replacement pretensioner is more than a whole new seat.

    Then one of those to reset the comp.

    Think it's 235 all in from Renault or as others have said if your not in a hurry you can get it sent away to get the codes taking out.

    Not sure if Renault would be able to reset them even if they could they probably wouldn't Renault say it should be changed. Any other garages wouldn't have the equipment to access it anyway never mind reset it.

    You do not need a new airbag computer. Send your current one to one of those ebay links I posted and they'll reset it.

    Renault dealers may say it needs to be changed but the renault tech manuals disagree with them, it even lists the steps to reset the comp. Send it away to one of those links and it'll be fine.

    You may be right. I've only read dialogys and in there it says it must be changed. When it happened to me the page on the clip computer was saying that the airbag computer had to be replaced. If other places can unlock them by reloading the software then obviously Renault can but like I said whether they will or not is another matter.

    Very true I imagine half of it comes down to you being bent over a barrel and what they can charge you. The manual i've got comes from dialogys which says it doesn't need to be changed except in certain circumstances. How clip works will all this I don't know because i've never seen/used one.
