    Just to conclude this thread, before spending money on 2 new front crash sensors I checked the yellow connectors under each front seat and checked the yellow connector to the airbag controller, all...

    I finally accepted that I would have to remove the front of my beetle to get to the problematic crash sensors, so I now can access the sensors. They are connected to the loom with a yellow connector...
