weathers starting to get cold, perfect time to add some bun warmers to your car!
^ x 100000000 it snowed today
I want snow and bun warmers
i used my bun warmers going to the gym today, it was glorious
glorious warm buns
It looks like the switches are in the center console, though. We do not have these spots in the 9th. At least not in my Si.
Right, you would need to buy the 9th gen equivalent of the switches which would then mount up like on the leather equipped models
2012 9th gen part #s to have oem switches (2013 parts may be different)
77311-TR0-A51ZA Plastic part the switches go into
35600-TR0-003 The switches themselves
93903-22320 screws for the switches (3x)
hey ethlar, what was the approx. cost of all the parts?
for the 8th gen the oem parts were the most expensive, i believe it was close to 130 for the switches/trim/panel and 70 for the 2 seat heater kit
Cool, thanks man. How much to drive down and have you do the install? hahahah
the installs not too bad as long as you leave yourself enough time to get it done, labor on the job would be astronomical though. I was quoted by a shop 300 a seat just for the labor.
Do you have a Si or EX/LX model?
oh then its easy, Si seats dont use the plastic retaining clips like the EX/LX does, they use metal hog rings that can be a pain to get to sit right when you reassemble the seat
If you have a weekend you can easily do a seat a day with time to spare, run the wiring while the interior is out and have it all running by Monday
Thanks for the help. Im really thinking about doing this......
definitely do it, its worth it, you can message me with any questions you have while doing it
I was looking on CHH's website and found that the EX-L comes with heated seats. Although, the pads themselves are quite expensive, but they should hook up to the electrical easily.
you can go that route if you want, its far cheaper and just as effective to use the generic heating elements and wire it up to the oem switches like i did
