Can't help you with stitching mate but am glad you've found the problem now at least and will be able to set about getting it fixed!

To Stu up above, as far as I'm aware the Titanium has the same loom as the ST so the wiring for the seats should be there. I've had a look in mine and it's all there taped up behind the button panel so it's very tempting! In my old Mondeo it was plug an play also, just needed the switch and a relay in the glove compartment fusebox, massive upgrade for such little effort!

Thanks - I'm on the lookout for the right seats and hopefully should get something sorted soon. I really like my Focus and can't see a reason to change - it's gets good MPG on my daily commute and so far hasn't cost me too much. I am considering getting it remapped at some point to smooth out the 1.8TDCi ;)

I'll double check my loom this weekend just to be sure.

Thanks

Stu

Hey Steads,

Good look with your repairs - if you have time take a couple of pictures? Between us all we should be able to put together a comprehensive guide in adding Recaro's to Titaniums ;)

Replaced airbag took about an hour not a hard job just a bit fiddly getting the back rest cover up and then down and stretching the bottom to clip in my theory was right airbag had deployed light still on but i,ll get my mate to reset it more than likely cos i,ve driven the car for a week or two with it on now thinks its a hard fault .
