View Full Version : Installing front seat heating elements on MY10

01-30-2014, 03:33 PM
I recently bought a sweet MY10 that didn't have heated front seats from the factory. I don't care for them, but my wife uses them all the time when the outside temp is below 40F. I found the elements for both front seat bottoms and backs from my local Volvo dealer. I'm pretty handy and since I've replaced them on my 240 series years ago, I could do this too. Being careful of the seats airbags would be a concern when removing/replacing the skins after installation of the heating elements. Any considered this or know of someone who has? Thanks for any thoughts or direction.

I just bought an '11 and it does not have heated seats, I was stunned. However, rather than mess with installing them I will get sheep skins, check with your wife and see if she would be happy with that. A nice sheep skin is a lovely addition to a car.
