Is there anything in the seat that can trigger the airbag? There's an airbag warning in the seat section of the FSM but I'm not sure what the danger is, unless there is a sensor that can set off the airbag. I may be worrying for nothing but for all I know if you remove the rear bolts and tilt the seat forward to unlatch the front there's a sensor that will think a wreck is happening and set off the airbag.

There is an airbag module under the passenger seat, I guess that is the reason for an airbag warning.
And I'm pretty sure there is no any airbag-related sensors in the seat.
What exactly are you going to remove your seat for?

I'm doing leather repair on the driver's side, it'll be easier to paint with the seat out.

I'm also going to lubricate all the tracks, bearings, pivot points etc. I can find.

The carpet is also getting cleaned.

Quick FYI, Abaddon says attempting to remove the seats can set off the airbags, and suggests pulling the airbag fuse. The factory service manual also says to disconnect the airbags under the dash. I'll try to do my business without pulling the seats first. I'm managing to get my painting job done, not so sure about lubricating the mechanicals.
