    Carefully lever off the locking tab/insert from the rear of the connector, then the housing can be withdrawn.

    Further thoughts on my problem,as airbag had deployed is it possible plug had melted inside and not glued as I thought?

    The clock spring looks identical to that from an Alfa 147 - you could harvest the connector or even try the entire part.

    Itís not unforeseeable as thereís a lot of current in the initiation circuit and heat in the gas generator..

    When I was replacing a failed airbag ECU on a BMW I had a while back I was advised that the ECU should also be replaced after bag firing as they are designed for one shot.
    So basically the advice was not to buy one without known provenance.
    I never verified it but worth checking out?

    Thanks for info,will look into alfa clock spring possibility,have been told that the ecu can be reset but have yet to investigate that ,apparently airbags can be repaired so that will be looked into as well.Thanks again.
