You need access to VagCom (the diagnostic software from VW and Audi). You can download it free at www.ross-tech.com, and buy the interface cable for your laptop on eBay for about $20. Or you can pay an hour's labor at a VW/Audi dealer to have them turn off the light.
What probably happened is similar to what happened in my 99 Audi A4. I have side airbags in the seats, and if the front seats are moved all the way back for any reason, it puts tension on the yellow airbag connector under the seat. That pulls it out just enough to open the contact and trip an airbag failure light. What I did was zip-tie the connector tightly (be very careful of the wires, as they're small and you don't want to pinch them), then use VagCom to turn off the light. Using the software is the only way to turn the light off - no ignition cycling or drive cycles, or number of miles driven, nor a battery disconnect, can reset the light.
Use VagCom to find out which airbag is giving you trouble, zip-tie its connector, and have the light turned off. Then you're set.

You need to either have the dealer reset it or you can do it if you have VAG-COM. Vag-Com is a piece of diagnostic software that uses a special cable to hook up to your car. You can read/clear codes among a ton of other things. It's very common for VW guys to have. Much easier than going to the dealer if you can find someone close to you. The guys over at www.tdiclub.com are always more than willing to help out a fellow VWer. There is a list of guys with the software - you can actually do a search to see if there's anyone near you. www.vagcomlocator.com or go to www.tdiclub.com

I have an '03 Hyundai Accent 1600cc. I am told by the techies at the local dealer, the fuel filter is ON the fuel tank. You gain access to it by removing the back seat, then opening the panel beneath the back seat. Replace the filter, screw the panel back onto the floor and the job is done....

I read on another site to check the "yellow" connector under the passenger seat. Connector ncould be loose or wires that go in the connector may be loose.
