    Had a good day on the car today even tho it was freezing cold and snowing at times!

    First of all I began by stripping the interior out



    I taped the wiring the same length as the dsc wiring


    Then ran inside to warm up and split the loom left and right sides



    Went an fitted it in the car


    And then split off for the fuse box and k bus connections


    I then pulled the fuse box down


    Went to go and fit the k bus connection and found that the block was full!


    After some looking at the wiring diagrams for the e46 I found there was a kbus splice in the centre console


    I then had to undo all my taping and bring the wire back out and join it into the splice wasn't happy!

    I then installed the 2 fuses in the correct locations



    After that I began routing the wires down each side



    Went to go and connect the earth wire and found the connector block full again!


    Found another earth point below the b post luckily!


    Fitted the earth wire into it



    Then went and untaped the ends of the seat plug and fed the wires up



    I fitted them in the correct locations


    And taped it all back up


    Did the same steps to the Drivers side too


    My new centre console hasn't arrived yet so I had to just have the switches where the glasses box goes there all in and working now


    After frozen hands it was nice to feel the warm seats
    Thanks for looking

    Oh man, I'm so jealous I would kill for heated seats at the moment.... All that wiring just scares the shit out of me...... Doubt I'll ever tackle it.. Fair play to you Jon, great work !!!

    Edit : could you point me in the right direction, who did your steering wheel refurb ???

    I think I have a " Wire Fobia" I'd have to sort out the heating elements etc 1st, it's a possibility for me at some point, winter and leather just doesn't work, missing my alcantara seats at the moment..
