2007 Porsche 997 Turbo

PostPosted: Wed Jan 25, 2012 3:59 pm    Post subject: Fitted OEM heated seats...info if required! Reply with quote

Hi
I looked into retro fitting heated seats with the OEM switches last year.

I could not make it work as the OEM switches are rocker type and not the same as after market set up with on off switches.

I went for all OEM parts and made my own wiring loom connected into the fuse box. I have sports seats, so part numbers for the heat elements will not be the same.

Went for Boxster switches to fit into blanks on centre console.

Tricky part is removing the leather from the seat base/rear to fit the element.

Below are part numbers with costs, only addition are back rest heat elements which come wrapped with the foam included.

A few images which may help you...

Thank you for merging this I have read Kam’s thread at length but I really would like to hear from 997 owners who have done this as the seat heating technologies on 997 and 996 differ and I would also like to see the type and position of people seat heating switches on a 997.

Hi
My 997 Turbo has no heated seat options.

It is even more complicated on the 997, as it is all linked in with the heater control circuit board. I gave up in the end.

I did fit GT3 bucket seats and added the heat elements with switches bought from ebay.
