Removing front passenger seat

Getting a 2018 HEV Niro.

Does anyone know how to remove the front passenger seat?

Is it pretty technical and require a mechanic or is it easy to do with basic tools?

Thank you for any information you can provide

Fair question!

I am sleeping in my car for 60 days and I want as much room as possible!

Haven't but its probably 4 bolts 2 front 2 back and some wires to disconnect if there is an airbag built into the seat you would need to kill all the power. Then you may possibly have an airbag light until you plug it back in.

You can throw a resister across the wires to kill the idiot light.

I have taken out the drivers seat 9 times during my subwoofer build. It is four 14mm bolts. You will have to slide the seat forward to get to the back bolts. Then I believe there are 2 electrical plugs, one for the side air bag and one for the seat belt sensor.
