    Hello again Folks,

    After a brief period away from Audi, I have returned.
    I'm sure my question has been answered, but, i'm looking to fit a leather interior with front electric seats to replace my standard interior without electric seats.
    Will the harness be in place to plug the electric seats into or will i need to do some work ?

    Thanks

    Steve Reid
     
  2. Hi mate, generally speaking the harnesses wont be there but you can get a pair of harnesses from a european site for about £35, i fitted the sport interior into my 2002 b6, and found no harness for the electric lumbar support, the guys on here gave me a link to a site for the harnesses, ill try and find it and repost it for you...............

    Thanks for that Dan, I think the item has been removed from that site, it doesnt show on that link.
    Was the harness plug and play ?

    pull the seat all the way back and lift it
    then pull the plastic cover off and see what is down there
    take a pic an post iv only ever come across 1 B6 without the wireing in place.

    Right, just been out and lifted the cover under both front seats, only thing there is in there is a connection that the air bag yellow connector plugs into. No other plugs at all, there are cut outs which are empty, nothing else

    There are no connectors under the seat for anything other than the yellow Airbag connector. Does this mean i'm on to a non starter fitting electric seats ?
