Hi all,
I am new to the forum.
I've bought a Black 2.2 Type S a couple of months ago and i've discovered that the passenger seat heating doesn't work.
I've checked the connection and the seat seems to receive electricity, but i don't want to risk disassembling it knowing the errrors and problems that might occur.:worms:
Was anybody else confronted with this issue?
Is there anything else to ckeck?

Thank you.:popcorn:

Never heard of that problem before. Have you checked the fuse? Not sure if the seats are on separate fuses or not.

If that's fine then it must be a loose connection or damaged wiring somewhere. Either that or the heating elements in the seat are simply knackered.

Heated seats are more or less standard equipment in Sweden.

Is it both seat and back rest that is not working or just the seat?

One thing I have not been able to figure out is if the heat will come on if no one is sitting there.
The heat is by the way not very impressive compared to german cars.

I think the heated seats were standard for this trim level. (along with folding mirrors, parking sensors, etc)
Yes, I have checked the fuse. Only the passenger's seat (right ;)) heating doesn't work.
From what I have seen, the heat comes only from the back rest, not the whole seat...
Is this the way it's supposed to be? Can somebody that hase heated seat tell me the way it should work?

My passenger seat doesn't appear to heat unless the seat is occupied. It certainly isn't warm when the seat is empty but passengers comment that its nice and warm. I haven't tried sitting in it however.

Normally the EX model's with leather seats come heated. Mines warm up quite nicely. Great to have for the winter.

I noticed this as well.

Also, both the seat and the backrest should be heated.

Both seat and back rest should heat up. The heating pad in seat can be damaged if you put a sharp and heavy knee on it.
