WH Front Seat Heating Element
I have an RDL set that is being recovered. When top of the front seat was pulled back, the heating element was attached (excessive glue) to the foam material used on the underside of the top cover. It would not detach, even with heat applied. So removal of top cover pulled heating element apart making it unusable !!
Of course yu cannot buy just a heating element from BMW, which forces me to an aftermarket element. BMW also does not publish, or make available the max allowable power draw the CANBUS will allow, before shutting it down !
> Anyone ever been thru this, or have any idea what the power draws are for low and high setting for front seat.
The aftermarket element I am looking at requires a min 10A fuse.
The kit comes with a relay and its own switch, so I may be forced to run it on its own controller if bikes canbus wont allow it..
Tks for any inputs !
