Heated Seats for a Jeep

You will see 4 plastic tabs securing the seat fabric to the frame of the seat.  I started by removing the front one first, followed by the sides and the back one.  The back one can be a bit tricky and a long screwdriver can help with this.

Now pull the fabric up on the front of the seat slowly and carefully.  It is attached with hog rings which need to be removed to install the seat heater.  Using a pair of pliers, I used angled needle nose, remove the first pair of hog rings.

After the first pair of hog rings are removed you will need to separate the fabric from the Velcro strip that holds it to the foam.  Once complete, use the pair of pliers to remove the next two pairs of hog rings.

At this point there is enough room to install the bottom seat heater.  This one has the cable attachment for the back on it and does not have the label calling it the back heater.  Route the cable through the back of the seat, this is why you need to remove the clip on the back holding the fabric to the frame.  Peel the backing and stick, the heater is installed.

The seat back now needs its heater installed.  Remove the back plastic clip from the front piece by separating the 3 plastic clips.  I found a screw driver helpful.
