    You'll find the other ends of them under the seats as well. Loom is in all Coupes IIRC.

    I'm considering fitting heated seat switches in my Coupe if it is an easy job. I looked under my seat and took a picture. I'm no expert or anything but what I saw seemed like some heating element with wiring.


    Is it a simple case of adding switches to the panel under the ash tray and away I go? TIA

    No you will have to put the heater elements under the fabric of your seats. Big job

    Thats the connection for your seatbelt pretensioners. There should be a lose connection under there also. That one will be for your heated seats.

    Does anyone have a full list of parts needed to do this mod? Parts that I need so far are:

    A replacement for the blanking plate that contains the rotary switches
    Heater element (not sure if this is multiple parts).
