Airbag error after removing the steering wheel

My dad has a BMW X3 2007 and the steering wheel was very dirty.
It's a heated steering wheel.

I've removed the steering wheel (after battery disconnect), painted the plastic trim and cleaned the leather.

I've put all back, the commands are working, all ok, except the airbag dashboard light, wich is always on.


I've checked the connections, they seems to be ok.

What should I do? Do I need to clear the errors?

Thank you

Here is the message that has just been posted:

You have to post a reply in that thread asking for a link to rheingold. Then you'll receive a private message with the download link. It's all very spy hush hush mysterious. But the link and software are legitimate.

You'll also need a cable to connect your laptop to your car
