When i bought the car last winter both back and bottom heat worked, now only the back does... (Which im starting to miss in this colder weather) I was wondering if anyone else has this problem or would know where i can look for the solution. Passenger side works good on back and bottom.
Thanks guys.

Only the back of the seats heat up on my car as well. But I dont think i ever remember the bottom getting warm. I always thought it was just the back that did. Id love to get both working though!

The lower element requires replacement, common failure.

If you are mechanically inclined it is a fairly easy repair. You will require the following.

Heating element - 64 11 8 391 696 regular seat, or 64 11 8 353 027 sport seat (x1)

Seat bottom clips 52 10 8 130 678 (x4)

Hog ring clips 52 10 1 945 543 (x20)

Mark.

Ah, I need to do this too. Didn't know it was possible! Do you have to pull the leather off??

how hard is it to get the leather off.
that said my sport seats have two plugs underneath, my prev seats only had one. i know my bottoms heat up, and i always thought my backs felt like they were (i only recently found out that the backs are supposed to heat up) . could the other plug be for one of the heating elements?

that said can i order the above parts and heat my back seats ?

The backs worked 100% when I gave you those seats. I'd check the wiring.

my old cloth seats heat worked, bottoms and back, and the power seats adj worked too,

my leathers heat or the power dont work,
can i swap the whole bottom end of the old cloth seat and put it on the leather?

*th-up*That is possible with a little patience and the correct tools listed in previous posts. I've done the same on other car seats before.

im pretty sure they do, ive just never checked. still dont know what the other plug is for though.
that and i was wondering how hard it is to change the leater. found a sport seat with an absoutely mint top. but haggared bottom. watned to put the top leather on my seay (or the whole seat back) to clean upthe bolster
