You have to get it reset via diagnostics...as Rashid has suggested

Cheers guys - i've since noticed i didnt plug airbag plug in completely so assume thats why light has come on - just a bit annoyed as now gonna cost me £25+ to get light reset!!! Unless anyone knows of somewhere near Bedford thats cheaper?? (without buying diagnostics unit)

Thats why it came on then... I thought it a bit strange it had come on as you did disconnect the battery prior, if you were nearer me I would reset it for you but Bedford is a bit far.....

Just for future reference, you DON'T need to unplug your airbag to change the bottom trim piece.

I did this just recently. You still disconnect the battery but all you do is hold the air bag out of the way when you slide the trim piece off. It saves you from getting that airbag light turned on.
