Ok so we’re taking out the seat right now.
Usually there are just four bolts on either side. There are the two bolts right there
and the two ones in the back around that little ledge. Then the whole seat can just come undone.
Just make sure you take off all the wires and stuff. Okay so we had to take out the
seat belt too. Basically it was just one of those little star bolts. One of these little
guys that was just stuck inside of there. Then the seat belt just came up and out, just
like that. And now the wiring is also unclipped, right here. So the seat can just come out.
So every seat’s going to be a little bit different. This one latches on with these
little clips. Just like that one; that one’s stuck. So this is the pad itself. It’s got
the connectors coming out the back. So all you need to do it slip it, now that I have
the seat up a little bit, I’m going to kind of tuck it up inside of there without removing
too many clips; make it less complicated as possible. And then get it up inside of here.
So the best way I’ve found to do it is to take off these little…these strips. Release
them all the way and then put them back down again so they’re not as tight. That way
when you slip it down underneath the seat they’re a lot easier to pull off. Cuz you
don’t want to pull them off and then put them in the seat, otherwise it’ll get caught.
And then make sure it’s as flat as possible underneath so the person sitting on it can’t
tell. So now we’re just putting the pad in the upper part of the seat back. The pad’s
in there all straight and everything, now we just need to pull out the sticky parts.
So for the side of the seat, this is where the button goes. I’ve take a drill bit,
I believe the actual size is like a 25/32 or 27/32.Then you just take the little sensor
and slide it inside. And then once the sensor’s in, just press it down into place. Looks like
I need to make it just a little bit bigger and it’ll snap into place and not come out.
And that’s what it looks like with the button in place. So now we’re just cleaning up
the wires underneath. I put them all down flat so I could still, if I need to, adjust
the seat at all. And I’ll still be able to slide it back and forth. Right now I just
have these wires sticking out just for the grounding power. So once I attach those I’ll
clean those up as well. So when we’re connecting the power, you have to connect it to a wire
that is only on when the car is on. So right now I have that wire cut open a little bit
as you can see. So if I touch it with my tester it’s not going to turn on unless the car
turns on. So now that the car is on its running electricity. That’s just to make sure that
we don’t have this running and draining the battery at the same time. So this is only
going to be on if the car is on. So this is going to work with the power I took the fuse
out…with the ground, the little round thing on the end wasn’t cutting it for me, so
what I’m going to do is I’m going to attach it to this bolt that goes right down inside
of there. The bolt was connected to the frame so it should be grounded. I’m going to do
it on this side. So I’m going to wrap it around the bolt and then bolt it in really
tight. I’m going to scrape away some of that black paint as well to give it a better
connection. And then right here, you never want to cut any of the wires all the way through
so I’m going to show you how to splice that in without cutting it. I made a connection
right here cuz I took apart a section of wire and then stabbed the other wire through it…this
one, and then wrapped it around. And that will make it so that the thing itself will
hold once I put the electrical tape around it. And it will also never cut any of the
wires. And there we go. I have the switch right here, the High, Off and Low. It’s
got the yellow LED and the red LED to show which one it is. I got all the wires tucked
up underneath zip tied to the top of the frame of the seat just making sure that when I slide
the seat back and forth we never have any problems with the wires getting pinched anywhere.
