I found a write up in the info base on removing the front passenger seat. I just want to confirm there won't be any issue with the airbags going off while driving the car? I'm not worried about the warning light, but I'm going to be driving without the front passenger seat for about a week and want to make sure I don't have any issues.

Car is a 2004 with manual seats

You'll be fine Bill. Unless I'm mistaken, the entire airbag system becomes non-functional when that cluster light gets illuminated (regardless of how it happens).

The airbag control unit doesn't "know" whether there's a connector fault with the front pass. seat side airbag or whether the seat/airbag are missing, so the CU disables the entire system.
