    never tried it on an astra but have done on other vauxhalls, removed the airbag ecu, and the airbag light from dash.

    had to join up 2 wires from airbag ecu for the speedo to work again.

    removed all airbags from car and fitted bucket seats.

    dont use this as a guide as it might not be this simple on the astra.

    Dont want to disable all airbags, there must be 6 others I still want to keep. Just the seat ones to disable without triggering the warning lights

    Easy peasy - if you know how of course

    Did my seat ones when i swapped them for the speedlines - all others are fully functioning and no dash lights

    I had to make up a small loom that would still trigger the others in the circuit - nothing difficult just some wire, fuse per side, and some connectors

    You just need a resistor in the Side Airbag connector, 4 Ohms I think.
