Removal of old seats and interior - Part One

First of all please disconnect your car battery!
Take photos for later on!
Remove your old interior starting with the front seats;
There are four bolts holding the each seat to the chassis and they are located by two bolts at the front within the seat rail and two at the back, one located within the seat rail and the other at the rear side of the centre console, these bolts are six mm hex screw bolts that are all the same width and length.

Once these bolts are removed, tilt the seat up at the front and disconnect the three cables for the airbag etc this is the same for both of the seats.

Re: Retrofit Electric Leather Seats into a hatchback

If you mean the wiring for the heated/electric seats then no, you need to get them from a donor car that has those seats, plues the rear fuse box.

Thanks

Re: Retrofit Electric Leather Seats into a hatchback

Seat heater elements wire direct to the seat ECUs.

Black/Green wires are not shown on the electric seats wiring diagram.

The only Blue/Yellow wire on the diagram goes to the electric seat relay in the rear fuse box from relay T12 in the dashboard fuse box. It's the main power supply for the seats and seat heaters, so if your seats are working, you must already have that wire (or a substitute for it) connected.

Re: Retrofit Electric Leather Seats into a hatchback

Hi and welcome to the FF! All heated/movement wires go to the rear fuse box, the only cables that need to attach to the front fuse box are as I stated the can bus pink/black thin wire this allows the seat to move.
Good Luck!

If its a thin type looking speaker cable, then look in the front fuse box below the steering wheel and you'll see the same type of wire, splice it and join them up.

Re: Retrofit Electric Leather Seats into a hatchback

Well I fed the wires along the door sill with all the other spaghetti cables then branched off just at the boot area and duct tapped them to the bare metal under the boot carpet snd fed into the fuse box I only did it like that as I cut my wires a little short when taking them from the donor car you live and learn!

sorry as you can tell im a novice when it comes to this, I understand that the passenger side wires lead strait to the rear fuse box; sharing the same coloured wires, however the drivers sides wires do not lead to the rear fuse box and the wire colours are different to those on the passenger side. therefore how do i connect the drivers side wires to the rear fuse box. do I splice all the cables running to the passenger side seat and extend them to the drivers side (so in effect they run in series?) or am i missing something

Re: Retrofit Electric Leather Seats into a hatchback

Tbh I can not remember the colours but yes they are different, they have to be to help you connect the correct wires in the correct place. I found just looking at the original connector under the drivers seat in the donor car helped me locate the those colour wires that are bunched up in the passenger side door wiring loom and cut them from there (yes the drivers side electric wires go through the dashboard and flow along the passenger side door sill loom)

Hope that helps.

Okay thankyou, my fiat already has a rear fuse box however does not contain the wires needed for the electric seat. Is my best option removing the original fuse box and replacing it with the fuse boxe from the donar car ?
