While having a colour coding session earlier on, I found that behind the circulation switch in the centre console,there is holes for vauxhall switches like the figlite switches, and I think these are for heated seats, it looks like the loom is behind,has anyone tried tracking this down? I got a corsa B sxi,and was hoping to convert it to heated seats-is there any other corsa bs with heated seats?

heat mats can be used from any vaux and the switches are universal you do need the cover with holes cut for the switches. oh and get the heat mats under the fabric of the seats too

by the way calidus you carnt buy the panel for the buttons to go in from vauxhall as they dont make one for some stupid reason...ive tried to get one from local vauxhall parts and ive also looked on epc and nothing on there either.

I really wanna fit some creature comforts in my car, if I have to buy a blank panel from vauxhall and cut recesses for the switches then that makes my car that bit more individual.
I know where there is a guide to fit the kit to a nova,using volvo 340 elements(apparently the heated seats and central locking etc are the same equipment as on vauxhalls, just badged up differently,makes sense)

the only thing i cannot understand is that the option o n the corsa cdx is leather heated seats and they panel with the heated seat switches is in them so they must do a panel for them??? but vauxhall could not find a part number for it and i was there nearly 30 mins
