My drivers side heated seat doesn't appear to work even though the buttons on the door function correctly. I am guessing therefore that its probably the element although it seems odd that both the back and bottom bits have packed up simultaneously. According to the previous owner this happened before and it was replaced by a main dealer (Greenoaks in Slough) at a cost of around 400 quid around 4 years ago. I just wanted to ask if there are any pointers to help me diagnose the problem without having to remove the seat (which seems too complicated). Can access be gained without a full removal of the seat?
