    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default Retro fit heated front seats

    I know there are umpteen threads on this but none seem to have many answers

    I have the sri leather that I kept from my old car and before the winter comes i'd like to get the heated seats going on my facelift sri.

    I have the wiring behind the plugs (on the dash) and all of the fuses etc are in place on the REC but there is nothing in the floor loom plugs. Do I just need the wiring from the foot well multi plugs to underneath the seats? Could I also add in the rear electric window looms while I have the carpets/seats out?

    Also will the front seats need tech2'd when I get the wiring in or will everything work as soon as the circuit is complete?

    Strange thing is that I have the wiring for the rear heated seats

    a member did my body loom and worked strait away. it was easy if your good at wiring no tech2 required. you can do rear electrics while your their but that does need tech2.

    you should only have the plugs for rear heated seats... also when doing the front seats you don't take the carpet up.

    Hallelujah! That makes the job just slightly easier, does the wiring run along that join in the carpet and along to the door sill?
