|rcout||I have a 2007 jeep wrangler x. How can I take the seat off of the mounting bracket without removing the bracket from the floor of the jeep. I don't want to drive all the way to Columbus with the air bag light on and the seat belt chiming at me for 3 hour. I don't have side air bags if that matters. What I am doing is replacing the front seats but I have to pick up the new ones and they will not fit in the back of the jeep even with the rear seat out. I have to wait for the brackets I need from smittybilt.|

|tkob1060||You do NOT need to bring the jeep to dealer to recalibrate the airbag BUT you must disconnect the battery and wait 2 minutes before unplugging the air bags, then when you reinstall disconnect the battery before plugging the seat in again. I know this for a fact, I had mine out for linex install.|

If the airbag isn't calibrated correctly, it won't deploy.
That's a problem for your passenger, but I seriously doubt it's illegal. Most vehicles have a switch to allow you to disable a passenger side bag anyway. I doubt the car manufacturers included a switch enabling you to break a law.

|nyrangersfan19||What exactly would happen if one weren't to recalibrate the airbag? I was planning on just removing the front seat, spraying the bedliner, then putting it back in without starting the vehicle in between. Any problem with that?|

|Croce||Dont mean to hi-jack the thread, But i needed to remove some bolts on the rear seat and seatbelt to install a seat cover. That wont make a difference with the air bags right since it was the rear seats?|

Seat removal for Rhino Liner
....Well i just found a Rhino Liner installer who will install the Rhino Guard for $500.00, BUT he says I have to bring the jeep to him stripped,..... top off, rear seat and passenger seat removed. From what I am reading here do I bring the jeep to the dealer and ask them to strip the seat?

First, I do not think the dealer is necessary to re-install the seat "properly". When you're done, simply bolt it back in and torque the bolts if you want to be totally proper. Re-connect the connector.
Second, you can remove the seat and connector (IMO), but just don't ever turn the key on when the connector is disconnected. The computer (upon ignition on sequence) will perform a self-diagnostic check of sensors and will be very disappointed not to hear back from the passenger seat. This will trip a code and this code typically is not resettable by the owner with battery disconnects, etc. (DCX would consider this a major fault code and wants the dealer to look at it.)
In brief, do what you want with the seat, just get it installed/connected before the computer discovers something was changed. You'll be OK.

Most Mopar connectors have a bar you need to pull out, and then a snap to lift up to disconnect it...like a red bar that pulls out?
Failing that...you can always just cut the wires..?
Especially if you never have a passenger, may as well have the airbag professionally removed. Provided you don't set it off or otherwise destroy it, you can always put it back in later...
