Volkswagen Restraints Wiring

The question is often asked, "Can supplemental restraints system wiring be repaired?" The answer is: it depends on the vehicle maker. Let's take a look at Volkswagen's position on this subject.

Per the Volkswagen position statement, Supplemental Restraint System Wiring Harnesses Applicable To All Volkswagen Models: "Do NOT attempt to repair the SRS wiring system or related components on any Volkswagen vehicle. Replace any damaged or bent SRS components with Genuine Volkswagen Parts. Some fasteners and clips are non-reusable; refer to the Volkswagen repair manual for more information."
