I had the pleasure of toasting my buns a little earlier. Nice.

The job was very well done as there were no bumps, wrinkles or indication that the covers were removed and heaters inserted under them. Great job Bill.

What holds the leather in place now that the elements are covering the velcro?

I left as much velcro as possible exposed. The rest of the velcro held the heaters in place.

In this picture, the velcro that is dead center of the seat was left completely open for the leather.


I had concerns as well about how the leather would stay without the velcro. There are so many things holding the leather on and into shape that it was a nonissue.

Very nice right-up indeed, especially with the pics! I have a 98 interior in my 91 Bonne, and I have thought several times about adding the heated seats, as I would agree that leather in a colder climate is no fun at all. I was at a yard last week that had several STS'* there, and I noticed that they had heated seats and I started thinking again....
But the dilema is I would have no idea of how to tie them into the 91 and make them work. When I put the interior in 3 years ago..I left the lower portion of the seats unsewn so I could easily add them. But I'm interested to try this again! any suggestions? and the elements came from a seville?
thanks

Correct. I found the STS in my junkyard and grabbed the leather and heating elements out of them. Removing them wasn't too bad, only needed a utility knife and some patience. The easiest way, which bill did, is to remove the seats from the car first, get the leather, then get the wiring harness from under the carpet and use that. All the wires tie into the driver'* side main wiring harness. Then remove the elements, being careful not to cut them or the wires, and then finally the relay. I was able to get the wiring diagram for the 92-95 Sevilles so that made wiring it properly easy. With the parts, i then told Bill about it, who located some himself. Having more time and know how than I did at the time, he was able to install them as shown. It would be easy for you to do in your 91. I waited cause I was putting them in my 98 Lumina LTZ and didn't want to mess up the wiring (since I didn't get the harness) I currently have them installed in my lumina and they work well.

Maybeone weekend I can make the trip to toronto and go to a junkyard with some of you members and hang out. I'd need a place to stay since it is a little much for a day trip.
