I wouldn't really do much fiddling because you could accidently set it off....

If a car comes in for us to replace the windshield and the airbag light is on, we pull it back out to the parking lot and return the keys to the customer. They are told we will be happy to put in their new windshield once they show us, in writing, that it has been checked by the dealer. The liability is not worth a couple hundred bucks for the new windshield.
Good Luck and if you do "fiddle" with it, just remember to stay clear of the airbags AT ALL TIMES while you are working on it!! If they would go, at least you won't be hurt!!

In other words: This may be a warranty issue and you may be able to get it fixed for free.

I realize that going to the dealer is a simple way to deal with this, but I'm always irritated when I could have done it myself.

I think Subaru has deliberately made this task difficult by not including enough information in their factory manual. Anyone with a different opinion?

specific section that has info about pulling codes (in great detail) is [T6A0] 4-4d, sec. 6 "Diagnostic Chart for On-Board Diagnostic System", subsection D - "trouble codes"
you may have to see if you can find this elsewhere, such as from techinfo.subaru.com
