Default Airbag Light

Airbag Light has decided to stay on. Simple fix of disconnecting the battery has done nothing.

can anyone confirm this can be reset with VCDS? Will VCDS tell me which airbag is causing it?

VCDS will indeed tell you.
The commonest cause IIRC is the front section of the seat occupancy sensor in Recaro seats. This is not really important and can easily be physically bypassed.
