Heated seats not working?? Here's why mine don't work (Pics & re-assembly details)

After like 2 hours of tearing down...

Here why the resistance of my heating element is infinity



I'll take pictures of the painful reassembly and post them.

Here's how to re-assemble that

Solder your heater element, then verify the resistance


I got this:


Glue the element back on

Like so:

This was the tricky part... when disassembling, I just cut all of them to make it easier, now to put this back together, I'll just use tie wraps (and I'll cut them too if I ever need to undo this again)


Place all the tie wraps, make sure you get the squares on the outer sides so you're not tightening them reverse to what makes sense



This is what I mean, the square end is on the outside.

Just tighten them up, cut the end, rotate them so that the squares on below.


Insert the back support and back heater wires in there, they will be in the back of the joint. Push in, move it left, it should pop in


Screw this first


Put back all the edges (black plastic retention clips, it's easier if you do bottom, left, top then right (i think))


Pass the seatbelt wire through, bolt the seat belt back on the side

Rebolt the hinge


Plug the wires back in & secure them


To put the plastic back, just get the lever through then it's easy


Make sure you put that clip in the back behind the metal piece


Two screws


That one


Two more under the seat that go on the side plastic, clip in the back.

Plug all the wires & make sure the seat can freely move.

You're done!

swing4thefence is starting off with a positive reputation.
Can anybody tell me where to find that broken piece from Martin's first picture? I just can't tell from the photo. It's too close up.

That little square thing is in the middle of the seat at the back where the upper and lower part meet. You can kind of feel it through the material.
