Front Seat Removal Help

Well, today is a big audio install day for my Maxima. I am going to be running tons of wiring throughout the cabin and need a bit of assistance. We all know the issue with the search feature, so I won't even touch on that. I briefly scanned over the front seat brackets and was wondering if anyone has any information for removal of the front seats as it appears to be a bit more complicated than in vehicles I've worked on in the past. I will only need to remove the passenger side, so the power seat wiring and harness will not be a factor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
-Tim

I've never removed my seat before, but how hard could it be? 4 bolts right?

Yeah, what I am wondering is if there is a trick to removing the trim pieces from the legs of the seats. Guess I left that part out of my initial comment, sorry.

The trim is connected by some plastics push type hook-on's (three) to the underside of the seat. Just pop them out and voila. Also, you have one electrical connection on the passengers side and two on drivers side. I disconnected everything by first removing the four bolts on the seat and then tilting the seat back. This made access to everything much easier. Also, heard rumors that you shouldn't switch the ignition key to on when the electrical parts of the seat are disconnected; it would trigger an air bag light. I had to take out the seats for some extreme soundproofing.
