Recaro Heated Seat Pad - Replacement Part Source?

I took my driver's side Recaro seat bottom apart and found a "cigarette burn" where the internal wires fried. I'm hoping to find a replacement pad that fits reasonably well for the Recaro seat, or better yet, an OEM pad for a decent price! If anyone has one or knows of a source for one that will work with minimal modification, please let me know! I'd really like to find one ASAP. Thanks!

That pad is no longer available.

Just solder a bare wire of silimar gauge in to jump the broken wire that caused the burn. Fixed for free!

You can buy aftermarket pads. It won't be plug n play but they are available.

Hey I'm right there with ya, but most of the time it breaks within the woven fabric and most of the time isn't repairable or at least I wouldn't attempt it, but it would work if you could do it.

A guy on youtube fixed his Acura seat pad by soldering a jumper wire on the broken part, I wish I tried that on my original pad years ago.

There are a couple of recent threads with a $25 pad from Amazon that should work great.
