Airbag error due to seat belt buckle kit

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone know what the Porsche OE part number is for the passenger seat belt buckle kit ? My airbag warning lights is lit and according to the dealer the codes indicate I need a new seat belt buckle kit. After some limited research it seems this may be a common problem with the 996's.

Thanks,

Darren.

There is a TSB (1/04 6924 Airbag Warning Light Comes On 7-21-2004) for this depending on the year of your car. Both buckles and electrical contacts need to be replaced (with gold contacts). If you have have any dealer goodwill this might be a good time to use it as a tech told me it was about a 2-3 hour job. BTW... the TSB is 12 pages long.

Hi Loren,

Is there a DIY on this? I am interested in the gold contact replacement procedure.

Are there any particular model years that are subject to this problem? Do we know when the gold contacts came into use? Thanks...

The procedure and what year/models are affected is all in the 12 page TSB.

Loren, I looked but the B section only noted my00 forward with no end year. I'll check again, might have missed it. Thanks. j

I checked the TSB and then the MY of the first poster back in '05 when this thread was started. OneDay's air bag light was on a MY99. I'm guessing that Porsche added the gold contacts for MY02 or 03. Interesting issue...thanks.

MY01 and newer should have the newer gold connectors.

A buckle can still fail from electrical or contacts corroding - or just plain wear.
