Hi all. Lots of posts about failing heating elements in the seat base, but no real instructions about fitting the aftermarket carbon heating element as a replacement. I know people have done it, but I wonder if anyone could give me a step by step guide to give to my auto trimmer. The wiring, in particular, is a worry - I presume that I can just splice it into the original element loom?

Any and all help appreciated....

thankyou Jeff, your guidance is appreciated.
All of that info is good, but my uncertainty centres around the fitment of the aftermarket element in place of the original, where to cut the element etc, and the splicing of the new wiring in to the main loom - wherabouts, is it actually necessary etc?

Thanks
Ian

Hi Jeff. I finally found what I was looking for to a tee. A UK colleague has done a write up, with pics on this forum. Won't allow me to post the link, but the thread name is 'Lower heated seat element', if that helps other forum users....
