    Heated Seats

    Hey Guys

    Was rooting around under my seat (dropped my phone) and noticed that I have the green connector on my seat.
    Am I right in thinking this is for the heater element?

    Just want to check before I commit to a kufatec loom and a replacement climate panel>

    Cheers

    Mine has one red connector for the electric lumbar, and the yellow connector for the airbag.

    the green plug is for heated seats, but good look trying to find a heater panel with switches
    i gave up and bought a complete car with heated seats to break

    would have to be my favourite mod at this time of year though

    take it those seats arent factory then

    I found it was cheaper to get one from the US because even with shipping it was still cheaper than the prices people wanted for them over here.

    They are factory but a rare option when I've been looking about I've only ever found 4 Inc mine with these seats. Here's a pic

    Your right about the panel with the switches! Got one from the US, just hope when it turns up it's not from a double din car!
    I have the factory half leather recaros in my one. Just like Bradderz ones above.

    Cerips
    Spot on, worked out about a fiver more than one in the UK without the seat controls. Might get a customs charge when it arrives, but not to bothered about that.

    I think it was an optional extra but I think the heating elements are manufactured to the seats so there are there but not wired up.

    I've got all the info from when the car was new they are listed on the bill of sale. I can only imagine that either recaro only made one batch of seats, or when my car was made thats all they had in the stores?

    Ok removed the seats, fitted the loom and control panel, refitted the seats, then when I went to connect up, no connector on the passenger seat! I had just assumed that as there was one on the drivers seat they both had them-silly me! So still don't have heated seats! Will look into getting the heater pads and fitting them to the passenger seat, but think that will have to wait till the new year. Failure

    I guess when the seats were being ordered from the supplier it was more economical to buy a whole consignment with elements for heated seats in already? Maybe you got unlucky and got seats from two batches!

    I thought that, maybe I need to link the passenger connector as its just an open circuit now?

    Maybe. I should have checked them both before I started!
