Default Heated Seat Question

Hey guys and gals,

Quick question. My driver seat heater is not working. When pushing the switch the light comes on for a second and then turns off right away. After reading some old posts most say that it'* usually the seat element, however someone was saying the 'module' may be defective under the seat. After switching it with the passenger side their seat started working again.
I figure this would be a better test first before ripping the seat apart and repairing or replacing elements.
My question: Does anyone have a picture of this 'module' (or whatever it'* called) so that I can try this first?
If not perhaps a description as to what I should be looking for would be awesome.
Thanks all - I appreciate any input!!!

Heated Seat Control Modules are located on underside of the seat cushions. You will have to unfasten just the seat cushion & tilt it up to gain access to the control module. Each control module has two electrical connectors C1, C2. Be sure to disable SIR by removing the SIR fuse #8 (then wait for a few minutes for the stored energy to dissipate) in the rear fuse block prior to working on the seats.

Hey great tips markwb. I just assumed it might be under the seat - too bad cause it makes switching the control modules a little more challenging.
Any tips how one unfastens the seat cushion?
Also I am new to the Bonny thing, where is the rear fuse block located please? I'm guessing but I think I read it was under the rear seat.

Thanks for checking in, I do appreciate it. I've been working a lot lately and haven't had a chance to look at it. Probably more important, it'* been -26C here for the last two weeks. I have a little concern attempting a job I have never done either I suppose - removing the seat cover specifically to access the module. I also have not yet removed the rear seat to check the fuseblock.
