How to remove front seats ?

I'm preparing for removing seats in order to install the heated pad inside of front leather seats.
Before doing it, I have to remove seats without any malfuction and SRS message.

I will trying to remove the trunk battery first and then hood battery.
Is it OK?

Please tell me any tips for leather seat disassembly and battery remove.

Thanks in advance

So your seats don't have the heating elements already?? Interesting. Many cars have like 4 bolts that need to come out to remove the seats. It should come out easily if you move the seat into the right position. On the disassembly of the seat.. If the front seats are like the rear seat was like in my car, you will have to remove the plastic seat anchors and I would imagine it would be like 20 per seat. They are designed to keep the metal rails for the creases in the seat in place. A flat blade screwdriver can make easy work out of the maze of plastic I shaped seat anchors but it is definitely time consuming..

I had to replace the foam as it became wet and moldy smelling from a leak in the trunk..

Good luck but everything should go into place relatively easily (assuming the heaters were designed for your seat)..
None of my business but have you looked into the cost of getting the OEM system?? I would imagine it would be expensive but you may be able to source the system from a wrecked car. Even if the seat does not heat I would have to imagine that the wiring would all be present and you might only need the OEM pads and the control switch..

Just a thought.
