Remove passenger side middle seat (not center)

Post by boatpuncher » Mon Apr 08, 2019 8:51 pm

Good day/night everyone. I've been looking to purchase my first Volvo. I have been looking at the XC90 (model year before 2010). My question is: Is the passenger side second row seat removable? I have a couple dogs and I want them to be able to just jump up to that spot when getting in. I have seen all the forum talk of the center second row seat and the SRS issues, but I will keep that in there, I would like to just remove the passenger side middle row seat. Thank you all.

Apologies up front, you were pretty specific.

For my own edification, I checked the wiring diagrams, buckle contacts are for front seats only. Nothing electrical at all in either back seat. Belt pre-tensioner is in what I believe is called the C-pillar.

I suspect the seat comes out no problem at all. Might have some flat ductwork to sort out if this car has 3 rows, that's about it I think

I can offer this tidbit of technical interest as a small token of atonement: https://www.citizen.org/sites/default/files/acf48dd.pdf
