Hi,

I was thinking going to a scrap yard and get some titanium power seat with heating.

Is this feasible and an easy swap?

I currently have regular heated cloth seats.

Where would you get that in Montreal? Can't find any Focus 2012++ in scrap yard ...

However, easy. You need to remove the cable from under both seats. You also need to remove the occupancy sensor. Once it's done, you remove the bolts and you replace the seat. You shouldn't have a problem with the airbag (unless it's an ST seat).

I didn't.

But yes, same connector. However, I am not sure if the power seat will get power. I think it come from the heated seat line - should check fuses.

EDIT: Actually, the more I think about it, the connector probably has every cable attach to it. If the dealer get asked to install seats with power, the job shouldn't be complicated. Also, it would cost less to always have the cable for power on the assembly line then custom. Same rule apply for the auto-dimming mirror.

Swapping or even just removing the seats I find the seat belt is the big annoyance. [rant]
May be some utube videos on how to do it.. back in the day (1998) when I tried it was a fail. I gave up due to the seat belt.

I thought that when I was looking for the Sony subwoofer connector in the back...

Turns out its a completely different car harness when you get the sony package...

Yes, because the interior is completly different (you don't have sony speaker everywhere)... however, when you have already heated seats, the connector is there so it's worth the additional cables at that point.

If I was able to get my hands on electric leather seats, I would do it for sure but like I said I am unable to find any Focus parts arround here. Only parts I can find is if you buy a damage car for 5-6k$.
