Hi Folks,

I've had a 997 c2s for around a year now. I had a small shoulder op few months ago and now find the standard seats very uncomfortable. To cut a long story short I have managed to aquire (via ebay) a set of powered sports seats (the ones with wings) that are much more comfortable. I assumed that I would be able to just swap them out and that the wiring loom would have an unused plug sat waiting for me. Doh. Can any one give me advice or supply a wiring diagram and a part number for the plug. I've checked out the airbags and they appear to be operational (no error warning).

Thanks in anticipation

Bad news... all Porsches have a custom wiring harness that is made to the original order spec.

That means you would have a lot of work to add in the wiring - not that it can't be done - it will be a lot of work though.

I dont give up that easy.

these seats are the adaptive sports seats. There are two connectors on the drivers seat and only one on the passenger.

Does anyone have available the wiring diagrams for these seats? and would anyone be willing to carry out a simple test for me. If you unplug the drivers side connector that goes to the black box (as apposed to the connector that goes to the yellow socket) does the seat still have power (do the seat controls still work) ?

The reason I ask is that I am not bothered about the memory or automated seat positioner (based on which key is is used to start the car) just the function of the seats. Anything has got to be better than the standard seats !
