Faulty seat-heat switch.

Greetings all.

I've traced a fault down to my seat-heat switch. You know, the black, three way one just off to the right down low on the front seat. Now, is there a way to pull these apart to check for internal problems? It's a simple three way switch, how hard can it be?

Cheers to all

Re: Faulty seat-heat switch.

Paul,


It is not a special switch. You should be able to pop it out of the seat and may even be able to take it apart for inspection/repair. It is just a single pole, double throw with center off.

If you take it apart, one word - SPRINGS!
