seat heater elements - 2001 SSEi
I read all the threads on seat heater element replacement, and they indicate once you peel up the set cover on the seat cushion, you will expose the heater element between the cover and the foam. I peeled mine up and the wires supplying current to the element disappear into a hole in the thin layer of foam that is sewn to the leather cover. In other words, the heater element is in between the leather and the thin foam backing that is sewn to the leather. Looks like the only way to replace it would be to cut all the stitching, replace the element, and re-sew the cover.
Has anyone done this repair on a 2001?
I suppose I could just leave the old element in the cover, and put a replacement element between the cover and the foam bun, but the heating would not be as good as with the original.
