Yup...sorry...I was working on pulling the 6.0L motor out of a Chevy 3500 Dually...

Motors still in it..but ready to leap out. At 2am we called it a night.... and I called Andrew.

Not sure if it helps, but placement is pretty much a matter of trying to fit all the heating elements in...if you do that, it should cover the whole seat.

I never took my leather off to do it. Snuck it under wherever possible.

(Yeah...he was upset I called...he was snuggling with his kitty... )

I don't have a photograph (nor heated seats) but perhaps this will help you.

Y do you thing this.....keep in mind that is the factory heated seats.......Being that the 00+ seats resemble the Caddy seats it should be pretty simple

this is with the heated seats in place... and when they are in there, there is no way for the velco to stick to the cushion.. it its all loose... and i dont understand why the leather isnt tight on the front part... all the clips are on...

I noticed when putting the leather back on mine you needed to move it around a bit. Push on it a few times and ti starts to mould itself back to shape.

In my case most of my velcro isn't holding, however the seats look correct w/o it. Probably because they had it for many years.
