the air bags are part of the car construction and to remove them makes the car unroadworthy
that means that in the event of an accident, your insurance,both 3rd party and comprehensive ,will be wiped exposing you to large payments for loss and injury
I can understand you wanting leather seats and toyota would have accommodated this wish in their cars with the proper air bag leather seats
the real answer here is to find the correct leather seat with air bags so that a clean swap can be made
sorry that it is not the answer you want but I do not advise how to fix that puts any one in danger
some auto stores carry but most craft stores carry a leather repair kit comes with multi colored little containers and different grain patches that u iron if you have a grain designed seat cost under 15 bucks and if you have a weird color u can mix colors to match
I use Griot's Garage leather care products and have been very pleased with the results. Thy have a leather care spray that will clean light dirt, but very dirty leather may require an interior cleaner that is PH blanced so it does not dry the leather out. Then after the leather is clean, allow it to warm in the sun and apply leather care, leather 3 in 1 or leather rejuvenator, all excellent products, that will sink into the leather and keep it supple and prevent cracking. I would not use shoe cleaner as that leather is dyed differently and may be too harsh for fine leather as is used on vehicle seats. Also keep in mind that in most vehicles, only the leather "seating surfaces" are actually leather, the rest is matching vinyl so be sure to test anything you use on a non-visible spot first.
As for repairs, there are kits available to repair holes and rips. Many are simple and require a small patch behind the leather and the placing of a color matched "goo" on top of the patch and pressing of a grained paper over the goo to resemble the leather graining, so it looks similar when dried.
the only way to do this is to take the seat out remove it from the rails take the rails to a machine shop and have them weld on extensions for the seat to slide on. you will also have to remove the rear seat stop so it will go further back and have them make catches in the extension for the seat to catch onto.
it's a black enamel coated thick WIRE or a cable/electrical lead? If it's a strong steel wire in black enamel it is most likely a part of the seat's reinforcement. Are there overweight passengers often sitting in there? Anyways I can't really imagine what tool could cut it nice plain enough -that's not the way! you could miss that "spare" part. look underneath your seat from the back, use a pocket torch to light it up there. Then look underneath it from the front using a mirror and lighting the spot from the back passenger's footspace with a torch. If you don't have a handy little mirror, borrow one from a woman-they always have one. you can pull it in from underneath the seat. You might need to remove the upholstery to get proper access though. If you're unsure, consider a visit at a Ford shop or an upholstery apecialist.
