Disarming seat airbags & console removal

I love the sound of the Coyote and the GT500 Axelbacks.

Road noise is the enemy.

When I had the back of the car apart to install the Silverhorse quarter window louvers, I took the opportunity to add Dynamat insulation to the spare tire well, trunk, fenderwells and rear seat area.

I was impressed with the dramatic results and since I’m replacing the near bald, 25,000 mile Pirelli P-Zero Nero mud/snow tires this weekend, (upgrading to 245/45 R19 Continental DW Extreme Contact) I decided to go all out and ordered another box of Dynamat to do the under carpeted areas of the cabin, for the full effect.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the seats and avoid setting off the side air bags?

Any help in yanking the center console would also be helpful.

Here’s some pix of what I have already accomplished with the Dynamat in round one.

Your advice is appreciated.

Console is easy, as you can basically pop the centre parts upward moving back to front and access the rest of the attaching hardware.

Airbags just disconnect the battery and let it sit for a bit. The seat plugs are directly under the seat. It's no trip mine.

It's getting to diminishing returns for noise control though. This part of the chassis is very stiff on the s197. Your efforts in the trunk floor are 90% of the solution that can be achieved. Maybe a bit in the doors wouldn't hurt.

An interesting observation: I had an early build 12 and now a lot build 14. The difference in noise control was quite marked. Now part of that is due to manual v auto but Ford was definitely evolving this as the went along here, more strategic in placement if material, a few extra smears if monkey snot on the rear inner fenders, for example.

I actually DID do the inside of the door skins with the Dynamat.

Concurrent with the Silverhorse racing quarter windows project I replaced the factory rear shelf speakers and the door speakers too. Left the factory woofers alone.

Holy Crap, did that improve the factory woofers or what ?
