1. Turn and hold trip meter anti-clockwise (left side)
2. While holding the trip meter, turn the ignition on
3. EML must have gone off by now
(If not, connect a VAG tool for further diagnostics)

I tried to reset my Service Inspection Light but accomplished something even better – resetting EML.
You can try this but if the EML keeps coming on, please show it to a mechanic or if you have VAG tool, make sure you diagnose.
This method is valid for Skoda Fabia but might work for some of the VW / Audi / Seat makes.
