I would like to try and remove the passenger side 2nd row seat in my 3 row Y. Turns out it's not that easy to pull up and out of the way to get in the 3rd row - especially for a kid.

Has anyone attempted to remove this seat? Unscrewing the bolts for the rails is a no brainer - but I'm concerned if I unplug the seat's electrical harness the car may freak out.

Thanks!

The car shows a warning on screen if a 2nd-row seat is tilted up for 3rd-row access, so there would need to be some way to trick / disconnect the sensor.

I submitted a service request essentially asking if the car would brick if I disconnected the seat harness. One would of course expect that it wouldn't, but Daerik bricked his car replacing the center console so who knows.

His situation was different, he removed a security component from his car which caused his keys to no longer be recognized.
