Airbag light

Hello Everyone,
I just replaced both of my seat belt receptacles and was hoping someone on here lives in Seattle that has the PST and was willing to deactive the airbag light for me. I live in Federal Way WA and Barrier Porsche is not willing to do it for free. Please help!!!

Boxter receptacles

I bought mines from Pelican parts which was a lot cheaper than Dealership. You might get lucky on Ebay. Make sure it's new. Give me your email and I'll send you pix on how I took mines off. I thought it was pretty easy...took me about 15mins per seat.
I'm guessing you know how to remove the seats.
1. Remove bolt holding on receptacles. Don't lose the bolts. Memorize how receptacle wire runs to the end at the bottom of the seats to the connection part.l
2. Look at the pictures I'll send you, and remove the black cap next to the blue on Right side and Green on Left side end of the receptacles being removed and make sure you keep the caps. Don't break them. Make sure you use a small flat head screw driver and slowly lift one side until it comes off. It should now just slip out from the side the cap was lifted off.
3. Cut the old receptacle wire so you could easly pull in off through the seat.
4. Now bolt on the new receptacles, run the wire exactly how it was originally. Slide the end back into the connector at the bottom of the seat. Put the black cap you had lifted off earlier back on by sliding it downward on the grooves. pretty easy...
