|xracerbob||Just did this yesterday on the seats in my '05 ST. It is basically the same procedure, but has the hog rings in the seats as well, just a bit of a pita, but not too bad. It helps when re-installing to have someone help spread the foam in the seat apart so its easier to put the hog rings back in.|

bump, cuz this thread helped alot.
just did my regular SVT seat.
i can confirm having to remove the hog rings. instead of getting replacement rings and the hog ring too, i just used zap straps as a replacement.
this is the part i got from Steve at Tousley
3S4Z-14D696-CA for about $25.
now, it worked, but it wasnt perfect. the old part may have been discontinued. anyways i had to cut my own holes thru the fabric to get the hog rings to hold. the existing holes were in the wrong spot. the pictures show the thermostat and wire are in the wrong spot, so to get the wire to match the hole in the seat foam, the pad had to shift up.
this one shows where i cut the new holes
and, the plug at the end didnt fit, but i was able to disassemble it enough to get the pins out and put the pins in the old plug.
also, i used a little bit of 1 minute epoxy to glue down the edges of the heating pad to keep it from shifting during use.
all in all, only took a few hours, and wasnt too hard.

installing electric seats?
Hello folks, It looks like I will be the owner of a Ford Focus TDCI 2006 without electric seats. Would it be possible for a novice but +medium handy to also add electricity as well as electric seats/pads according to these nice advises?

|dirtydog88||Hi everyone, My first post on here and it's a help one! Have had my ST170 for just about a month now and the drivers heated seat doesn't work, passenger side is ok though. If the seat pad goes does it stop the pad in the back of the seat working as well or is it more likely it's got a broken wire?|

|Jay81||I need to get on this soon. I cannot take the cold leather anymore! When the heaters did work I thought I recall feeling it on my lower back to, will I need to replace that pad as well? Since both pads are not working do you think it may just be the wire that is gone at the thermostat?|
