Install complete

As the pad goes between the seat fabric and foam there is very, very, very little risk involved in adding the element, moreso in that there are OEM seats that contain a heated seat element.

Obviously, take extreme care not to knock loose any sensors or pinch any existing wires.

That said, I finished my install today. Pretty straight forward, read the whole how-to here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...32#post4456132

For power, my 2012 SE hatchback has existing fuses on the rear fuse panel for heated seats (both are 15A). I simply tapped those for power and ran the wires down under the door sill trim.
