I will be installing an aftermarket seat heaters kit on my JLUR and I’m having a hard time finding guided instructions on how to remove the front seats and the leather to place the heating pads inside.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I’d very much appreciate it.

Cheers,

Mauro

I think it's just 4 40-Torx bolts and two connectors that need to be disconnected to remove the seats. I took out the passenger one to install a USB power plug and ran it through the center console. The seat was pretty easy to remove, the connector was a little stubborn, but with patience you can get them out.

Thank you.
Any steps to perform to avoid issues with side airbags?

No issues with the side air-bags. Just be sure to disconnect the battery (both of them) 30 minutes before working on any electrical system.

Hey, how'd your install go? Planning to put mine in the front seats as soon as this DC area heat goes away. Where did you wire it into? How'd you mount your switches and any suggestions? Thanks!

By both you mean also aux batt? The aux is responsible for airbags ?

I’m extremely curious as well. Disconnect the battery for 30 minutes prior to working on the electrical system? What for?

I am thinking to do the same and wondering do I really need to disconnect the battery since there is also an Aux battery to supply the power. Now it begs the questions on how to disconnect the aux battery.

Any time you deal with airbags you need to disconnect the batteries. Yes, both. Remove the negative terminal from the main battery, then disconnect and separate the other 2 leads from that. You must keep these separate to fully disconnect both batteries.
