    The red light indicates that the battery isn't being charged.
    Possibly there is a problem with the alternator or the poly V-belt.

    Unplugging the siren module (and sealing the connector) is indeed the best thing to do.
    If not, the canbus can still try to cpmmunicate with it leading to (some) unnecessary power loss.

    This is, as you can see from the date of the pdf at the bottom, a printout from the 2010 version of Vadis.
    It's in Dutch, it says to fill until full and then to remove 0.1L/100mL.

    Taking a look at the pdf I posted in #5, I am not sure there is a relief valve.
    Perhaps item 14, the bleeder nipple (although the name suggests something elso to me)?

    I think it is indeed best to follow the more recent Vadis instructions that call for removing 100mL after a complete fill.

    Some codes go away after a number (3?) of OBD runs without error.
    I don't know if the SRS code is one of them, but you could give it a try:D

    According to Vadis, the voume of the differential is about 0.5 liter.
    Did you fill the differential until the oil reached the bottom of the fill hole?
    If so, then there is too much oil in it. 100mL...

    on the electrics of the steering lock to avoid triggering the SRS system.

    If I remember well (for a MY2004):
    Remove (6 or 7?) clips/push-pins on top, tilt forward, then release hooks at the bottom.
