Thought you guys here would enjoy this article. I wrote it up using some information gained from this forum and my own personal experiences. It always seems to be a "hot" topic whenever it gets mentioned here, I hope it can act as a complete guide for future reference!

Very nice article. Rear heated seats are on my ever expanding list of projects for my T-5R.

Haha! Yep, that's me. Although the timing of the article might not be the best considering it's 70ºF+ every day now :lol:

Great article, Alex, but unfortunately, I am thinking it is kind of pie-in-the-sky if the parts are scarce as hens' teeth, no?

I just found this option on an 1998 S70 GLT in the junkyard. Pulling the harness that runs along the console to the back seats from the center console was surprisingly easy . Don’t forget the relay. Pulled the rear lower and back seats too. Will use my leather instead when I install it. Never knew something like this existed. They’re still out there.
