Soz - I thought you meant they came out of the foglight once they went TO the foglight.

Yeh that whole plastic part is missing as is the sensor and its wiring. Probably happened during the crash.

But there must be wiring for it somewhere further back - where does it originate?

After a few hot days the car started no problems.

The wet engine bay from all big coolant leaks made it too moist in there, a few days standing in heat and some WD40 made it all good again.

You mean the A-Pillar airbags.

I did describe how to remove these - prize off the strip covering 3 or 4 torx screws. Then remove the main trim. The actual airbags do not need to come off.
