cloth seats to heated leather seats

i recently replaced my old interior with some leather. my car has no heated seats. so i got a link up on some heated leather seats. the seats came out of a 1990 325i i believe. i know the seats connect to a wire under the seats.

what i was wondering was. how do i connect these heated seats into a car that came without heated seats. will i need to part some other parts from the original car the seats came out of?

any input is much appreciated.

you need the wiring harnes in order to do that you still can buy the harnes new from BMW or go and get a used one!

go on and look there what you need and i hope it helps you out a bit as you also see the location of the harnes you are looking for

Bye Andre

i have a sale pending on wiring harness, switches and centre console. buyer is in the same position as you.
When I removed the harness from the parts car, there were only 2 or 3 wires that went to the car wiring, and I cut them just under the drivers door sill with enough length to be workable later. I believe they are fused, but im too lazy to get out my manual right now. Then you would have to fuse it yourself.
good luck, if the sale falls through, ill let you know if you're interested.
