Is this a common problem, And is it just a matter or reconnecting wires or does it relate to a known fault? Does the whole seat wiring kit need to be replaced?
Any help much appreciated.

BUT i would think that you may have hit a kerb or pothole hard enough to blow your front seatbelts,
to check remove one side and shake - if rattling it has fired and is gone. It may be working mechanically but will never work electronically again -
a very common problem with all new generation vehicles from VW family (which includes Seat, Skoda, Audi) - if one goes they both go. If this is the case they will need to be replaced - airbags ireland can sort this for you as well - contact them for a price.
Happy motoring - you know what they say about cars, they are buckets with holes in them.
