1995 993 Airbag

Interior

Vehicle Information: Year: 1995; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 11,600;

The airbag light came on. Two dealers said I needed a new air bag, the first said this would include replacing the steering wheel, the second replaced the air bag but was only able to supply one in black for my red interior. After a short period the warning light came back on again. The Dealer said I needed either the airbag control unit or the airbag contact. It was decided that they install the control unit but after a short time the warning light came on again. This time the Dealer replaced the airbag contact unit at no charge but I'm still out $1300.00 for the two repairs that may not have been needed! My questions are: could the diagnosis have been more accurate to start with, would you recommend reinstalling the original airbag, what is the life expectancy of airbags?
