heated seats

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm still the new guy here. I was browsing through the Boxster Hacks website and stumbled across a thread regarding the '98 boxster seats all having the heater coil built-in regardless of whether the option was order or not. To enable the feature, one would just need the buttons and necessary wire harness. Can anyone tell me if this is still the case of the MY03?

It is an internet rumor that was around before I started Boxstering 5 years ago. Looked for them on many non heated cars and never found one.

Den Vogle has come up with instructions for a retrofit but you need to buy the upper and lower foam with the heater coils in them.

Here is another guy that dispelled the rumor. http://www.burnham.my-net-space.net/

You can also see the electrical wiring if the foam parts are heated. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...st=0entry4909

There are 2 part numbers for the bottom foam cushion and 2 part numbers for the upper. One part number if it is heated, and another if it is not. There is also a price difference. It would make no sense if all the foam was heated when there are 2 part numbers.

If you come to a work on cars day I will put the upper cushion off my car since it has heated seats and show you the wiring - takes 5 seconds. Then I will pull it off your car. It is very easy to tell if the cushions have the heater coils.

You can see in this picture of Jamie's car (a 1998) that there are no wires from the foam for a heater coil since he does not have heated seats.
