Hi, I have a Mk3 2.0 Tdci Ghia 130, When I start the car the airbag light flashes once then 9 times, it then pauses and will start again, the same sequence before staying on. I have read the codes and the suggestion is taht it is the clock spring. Is there any way of telling if this is the case as i dont wish to spend out to find that it is not this. I have had the unit off, is it correct that the unit comes off complete with the indicator/wiper stalks or do they come off. I have looked at some clock springs on e-bay for my model and they do not have the stalks attached. My car is due for MOT and I know it will fail this time around with the light on. Any help would be appreciated.

Flash code 19 is a driverd airbag or airbag wiring fault/short.
The likely culprit is as you say the clock spring.
They are usually seperate to the levers but are available as a whole unit.

Would you know what the suffix -AB, AC,AD  are following the part number, the parts are advertised as being mondeo 2001-2007 does this mean that they fit all?Only I have looked at several on e-bay, they look the same but have a different suffix
