SRS Side Impact Sensor Location

Hi all, I need to replace the Side Impact Sensor on my R75. I believe it is under the seat under the carpet. Having had the seat wires soldered I am loathed to take out the seats to get to it. Does anyone know exactly where it is as I am considering cutting the carpet under the seat to get to it rather than pulling out the seats to do the job - Is that possible?

Precise location would be really helpful
Thanks All

Inner sill, about 6 inches from B pillar....very tricky to get to without taking seat out.

Thanks - went down Halfords got the socket to remove seats and plucked up the courage to do it. bought a new one off ebay waiting for it to come.

Its a pig to get out as the bolts were all corroded. Still when the new one comes that light better go out.

Joints under seat soldered - new side impact sensor to fit - what else could it be. It better be this or else I am going to blow a gasket.

Why not try to get to the sensor before removing the seat?

May save you alot of work!

Why did you solder the seat connections?

A proper crimp connection would give 99% as good connection, highly unlikely to work lose, and you could remove the connections in a matter of seconds.

I had the light come on a long while ago and then changed my original seats for full leather. Since I did this and made the connectors secure I have never had the light come on again... More info here... Click Me
