If the child is to be seated in a booster type seat then I see no reason why the functioning airbag would be cause for concern

If, however, the need arises then I am sure the airbag could be unplugged from behind the unit itself. This would mean disconnecting the battery, removing the glovebox to enable removal of the airbag to unplug. It would all then need to be put back together again and you would probably, as previously mentioned, end up with warning lights on your dash!

Child is 2, so using a normal forward-facing child seat. No glovebox, just a space, so need to investigate how much would need to be removed to gain access. Might get my hands on a haynes manual and see if that helps ...
