Question Disabling or removing Bluetooth

It's probably not possible to disable Bluetooth via the menu. It can be set to "off", but it's still sending a radio signal. So I am looking to disable it by removing the hardware. Is this feasible and where is the Bluetooth module located?

I found that the MAC address of the Bluetooth module in Niro Hybrid belongs to Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd from Japan.

Which version of Bluetooth is implemented? Version 4.2 or later?

Bluetooth is often installed as a small pluggable module that can be removed. Would it be possible by removing this module or to disable it by disconnecting a plug? Or perhaps by cutting wires? I can solder/desolder if necessary.

Thanks for any answers!

There's probably very few auto enthusiasts that have the answers to your questions, so don't be too disappointed if you don't get responses here.
