I'm guessing that aftermarket heated seats would be such a hassle to install as you'd have to cut open the seats and probably retrim it. Another option would be to look around for a set of heated leathers from another ZS and fit them, I'm assuming that the heating elements would still work as everything is contained within the seat.

I have just fitted a Weaco MSH-601 heated seat kit to my Titanium leather seats. To be honest fitting the elements in the seats was fairly easy. Finding a good spot for the switches was harder. Wiring is easy too as there is a fuse already for heated seats. Took about 4 hours in total.

Does anyone have genuine heated seats fitted? Can you upload a picture of the switch and where its fitted. Thanks

Have no pictures but its located on plastic on the bottom of the seat, on the corner pointing out towards the A-pillar.


Edit, here is a picture, its a lhd but should make no difference.

I have fitted a few sets of aftermarket heated seats that have been supplied by my customers but none of them are anything like as good as factory. look for a smashed up fiesta or focus and have elements wired in but put them through a relay not a fuse its safer.

The kit I bought has relays included. It looks very good quality and I can't fault it really. I'd recommend this kit to anyone. It was easy to fit with a good manual.
