    Installing heater pads, anyone got a guide?

    Have bought heated seat pads but don't know how to get the seat covers off to install them, anyone got a guide or tips or anything? Not actually had a go yet as I'm still waiting for them to arrive but would like to get an idea in whats involved.

    TBH, I got a friend who fits leather retrims to do mine, much less hassle.
    He did both front seats in a few hours.
    Might be worth pricing up some local retrim places first before you get stuck in, as they will be equipped with the proper tools for the job.

    Well I'd rather give it ago myself before I'm forced to get somebody else to do it, even if I have to buy the right tools aslong as they arn't too expensive atleast then I can do it as many times as I want instead of being forced to keep going to somebody else.

    the only special tool you need is hog ring pliers.
