I want to remove the front passenger seat, so I can get more cargo space. I don't want to set off the airbags or create and issue with the insurance companies. I'm not going to have anyone else up front, but I don't want to disable the complete airbag/safety system.

Hi- removed mine last year. No biggie, once you have removed it you will have a blinking symbol on dashboard- get used to it. It doesn’t bother me in the least. Doesnt affect airbags usage. Not sure why you’re concerned about ins company policy?

Yeah, there was a Facebook group that mentioned that it would disable all the airbags, and void the safety system overall. They said that if the insurance company found out, they would deny your claim. I wonder if I can go to the Nissan service center and ask them to disconnect the seat for me. Tell them that I require the seat to be removed for my "cargo" hauling requirements.

Yeah, I saw your message a few days ago. The notification didn't pop up in my inbox. I checked my messages after your previous post. You have been the most helpful. The Facebook groups have been all over the place and the service center freaked out of the mention of removing the seat...lol. You think they would just remove the seats if the customer requested it. (Customer service is dead). I'm just so paranoid that the van would blow up if I looked at the engine wrong. I'm more of a computer repair guy, but anything automotive is a new world to me.

Yes, if there was a switch. I've yet to see one in a North American Nv200. I've only switches like that in the odd regular or supercab(suicide rear door) pickup truck. It used to piss off the ex- when I'd turn it off on her.

Ahh, Facebook! The source of all true information.
Mybsuggestion? Call an insurance company and inquire about a policy for a NV200 you’re going to buy.. Bring up the fact that once you buy the carbyou are going to remove the seat. See what the response is.

Apparently/supposedly here in Japan just removing that foldup rear seat is a no-no. Me? Reminds me of an old cartoon. Scroll over to 4:14 if you’re in a hurry.
