    Simple really. Disconnect negative battery cable. While unbolting the seats the caps should have sufficient time to discharge. About a minute is enough for discharge but more time can't hurt. Then disconnect the connectors. After swapping seats and recoonecting srs connectors. Reconnect negative cable. Start car the airbag light should stay on about three seconds to run system test. If the light goes out all is good.
    hope this helps

    No cel. The engine ecm has no knowledge of the srs. There is a srs computer mounted on the tranny hump under the center dash. If the airbag light stays on after self test then there is a problem in the srs circuit. I can check part numbers tomorrow but I am willing to bet the side airbag modules are the same so I wouldn't expect any problems.
