Golf R seat ...
Yellow plug - Airbag
My method would be -
Cut off plug from Caddy seat, solder to Golf seat wires.
3 wires
Wire Brown to Brown, 2 other colours same to same if possible, but doesn't matter.
Seat occupancy plug - leave unplugged.
Seatbelt clip plug - leave unplugged.

Made a start on the rear seat conversion. Looks like the previous owner didn't know how to put lids on things properly Image the glue is peeling off easy, the green stuff does not want to come off! ImageImageImage

@Jordan92 . Sorry seem to be having a bit of trouble with Tapatalk. Thanks for your comment. They aren't cheap but they are good quality & easy to fit & a massive improvement on the factory mirrors.

Welded the rear seat brackets in today. Didn't take too long, used the ramp in work and dropped the tank just to be safeImageImage

Spent most of the day washing, decontaminating and waxing. Hopefully weather will behave, so it's gonna be just a quick wash next weekend before the Tatton Park.
