    Heated Front Seats - Retrofit

    I have a new interior I am installing and the new fronts are heated.
    Can anyone tell me what is needed to wire these up? is it just a switched live and earth or do I need more parts?

    Cheers

    its easy enough to wire up matey IIRC it loops back to the switch for temp control, without the switch prob just flat out all of the time otherwise

    I fitted RS4 seats into my pre-facelift which previously didn't have heated seats.

    Much thanks to Mark(Byzan) without which I would have been driving more of a potential fireball than a car.

    At this time of year, can't recommend heated leather enough.

    I bought a full heated seat loom for 50. Well worth it!!

    I bought a loom from an S4 being stripped, but I believe Byzan made his own loom (I sold him a spare set of heater controls).
