I've been hunting around the shop looking for the part number but have misplaced them (time to clean the shop?).
If it the bottom element thats great cause the back elements require the removel of the side air bag and seat belt mechanisms.
Is this the drivers seat or passenger seat?

i just found out that it is covered under the GM certified used car warranty (3mo./3000mi).... So case closed....

But if this happens again in the future when I am not covered, I am sure I will be back with more questions..

Thx

Glad to hear you have warranty
My feelings are that the element breaks when you sit in the seat and its still cold?
I live in northern Canada so I've gone threw 3 already. The first time took the whole weekend, I was too scared to really pull on certain trim pieces. Thats part of the problem too, everything is snap together and the seats are heavy.

Did you dig into it yet?
You could disconnect the bottom element and just use the back I think?
A lot of work to get at the harness but a quick fix if your in need?
