Re:

I'd recommend disconnecting the negative terminal of your battery and wait a few hours before disconnecting the seats wiring harness.
This should deactivate the airbag system.
Have a good cleaning!

Re: 5yrs of filth gone

not sure I'm asking but doesn't the ignition key have to be on for the bags to pop? this is so the bags don't pop when vehile is parked and someone just bumps it a little

Re:

It's a precaution that's mentioned in service guides. If you're feeling confident, then power to you.
Yes, disconnecting airbag connectors without disconnecting the battery has been done before. So have texting while driving. But I wouldn't recommend it.

Heh? A leaf blower *inside* the car? That sounds like chaos! How do you stop the dirt from blowing up under the dash? Or ricocheting into the vents or speakers, or sandblasting your plastic panels or headliner?

Maybe if you vacuum *first*, THEN use the leaf blower (then vacuum again), but this method doesn't seem like a good idea to me - unless you can control where the dirt/dust is going. That's what *suction* does for you.

But hey - if you're going to the trouble of taking out the seats, you might as well take it a step further and pull out the carpeting, too.
