Hi, I want to remove the original 3-point seatbelt since I’m fitting 4-point harness. And I noticed that the belt tensioner is connected with yellow cable, which is normally something to do with an airbag.

 

I wonder if I’ll get airbag error on dash if I will remove it and whether I should cut off the battery when I will disconnect it?

Put a resistor between the wire leads and all is fine. Do a search here, but from memory you need 2.8Ohm

The yellow cable on the retractors are for pretensioning of the seatbelt while crashing.

Yes, I was guessing the same. I am curios if disconnecting the cable will give airbag fault on dashboard?

Yes. As above, fit a resistor to mimic the belt tensioner...

While here it says 1.6 Ohms www.vx220.org.uk/forums/topic/142003-useddeployed-seat-belts/?hl=resistor#entry1853721

I’ll try 2.7 will write back which one is correct
