SRS ligths shows up

Asked by Nov 13, 2012 at 06:56 AM about the 2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 320

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

under malfunction it show 1 . Ligth of SRS stays on. Seat belt on passeger's side sometimes beeps and only way to stop is to connect seat belt even if no passenger is no hesistant. Bosch service centre told me that the machine diagonises as a SRS fault and the sensoe under the seat has to be replaced. Do you know part number and where could I buy this part and price. Apparently is a very thin sheet of material, with a plug. Seat has to be removed to be fit. I am in USA in January and would like to buy the part. Regards Ferdi

actually aggravating to do: disconnect the battery allow 5-15 minutes for computer charge to drain.... if you move the seat forward and up from the back bottom you should be able to see the computer and sensor plug. easiest if seat is removed completely.Stressful part: once seat is removed if power seats...reposition the seat by supplying power to the motors so you can seperate the base from the top (if you have to): carefully remove the leather cover from the cushion. there are maybe 15 or so small metal rings to cut with a pair of cutters from the foam cushion., (Don't worry small thin zip ties work fine to replace them, AS LONG AS YOU PUT THE HEAD OF IT FACING DOWN). for the leather. then you will see the very thin plastic strip around the seat. (forgot how it is attached, maybe just sitting), then you unplug it. replace the new one, and reassemble the seat....alot of times they are dealer only, ALSO RECOMMEND DO THE SEATBELT BUCKLE SENSOR ALSO!!!!!!!!!! as they "communicate with each other" just a suggestion...as far as places to buy it. : not sure, they are not open yet but CPI is mostly who i use for everything, if you have a carquest close, they can look it up ask them to see if it can come from WORLD PACK!!! (a secret of the trade), ,and price it from a dealer...if i over looked any points feel free to message me, but in all not knowing your skill level, set aside 3-4 hours (for a novice) and take your time, and do it right....may i ask where about you are located, and have you had to convert the rear air bags to regular suspension yet??
