I have a 2006 Police Package.

I've ordered a RAM Mounts laptop stand for my new ride. It will be here tomorrow. The mount fastens to the front seat bolts on the passenger side. In reading the online documentation, there is mention that on 2006 and newer models, the airbag system was tied in some fashion to the front seat bolts.

So my question to the veteran members of the forums, what sort of trouble am I looking at to remove the two passenger-side front seat bolts, put this bracket down, and put them back in?

The documentation says that only a Dodge Tech should remove the bolts or someone familiar with fleet services, so I'm a little put-off by that statement.

FRONT SEAT - RIGHT SIDE


1. Before proceeding with the following repair procedure, review all warnings and cautions. (Refer to 23 - BODY/SEATS - WARNING).

WARNING: The front passenger seat must be handled carefully as well. When removing the seat, be careful when setting on floor not to drop. If dropped, the sensor may be inoperative. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury or death.


WARNING: When the seat is on the floor, no one should sit in the front passenger seat. This uneven force may damage the sensing ability of the seat weight sensors. If sat on and damaged, the sensor may be inoperative. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury or death.

WARNING: On vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the supplemental restraint system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, airbag, occupant classification system, seat belt tensioner, impact sensor, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the supplemental restraint system. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury or death.




2. Remove the right side front seat with OCS sensor two front attaching bolts (1).



3. Move the seat forward to gain access to the rear bolts.
4. Remove the right side front seat with OCS sensor two rear attaching bolts (2) and (3).
5. Ensure that the ignition key is in the off position.
6. Disconnect and isolate battery negative cable.
7. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
8. Remove the seat.

In this case, I'm not removing the whole seat. I just need to remove the front seat bolts to attach a mounting base. Sounds like I'm pretty safe. Thanks!
