The covers come undone pretty easy from the back to enable the pads to be slotted in, the come with ds tape which I didn't use, makes it easy for removal.

The back rest has a couple of split rings in which are hard to get at, the split rings pull the bottom profile seam in to give it definition. They are still in the seat but I used tie wraps to replace them.

Makes it easy to remove and put back to original just in case

A step-by-step guide in the "how to" would be so nice!!! I have a kit I bought for another car but I was unable to mount it because the seat cover was glued. So, I would like to try on Kadjar.

Hi
My Kadjar doesn't have heated seats from factory either.

But isn't the original heaters always there?
i was thinking to just add the buttons and it would work?

What did you find out in your adventures? ;)

No I'am afraid theres no heating pads wiring or anything else to do with it

Trouble with the Kadjar seats is the the line down the center from front to back.

This line has velcro on the back which fixes to a slot on the seat base sponge

So you cant reallt slot a pad in,  it needs 2, one either side of the line to keep the definition

The best thing with the original swiches is that they turn off automatically when you turn off the car. The bad thing is that you have to turn your head from the road to see the setting. Maybe yours are as off sight, but I guess the setting of your switches can be felt with the fingers?

Anyway, all Kadjars have heated seats in Sweden, as well as any other new car sold here.

Mine does not have it installed from the factory, apparently because it was one of the first imported to Denmark.

But i've decided to try without it over the winter to see if i really need it ;)

If you have leather (plastic) seats you will need to heat them.

I was going to do an install guide but the last one I did got that many comments about warranty issues that I'd thought I'd not bother, although it doesn't help folk who might want to have a go there's nothing like having a guideemoji851.png

2. how to power them

3. and how to mount the switches.

Everyone decides for themselves about the warranty. And at this point some of us are almost out of the regular warranty anyway. I for one would very much appreciate an install guide :)
