Had mine done under warranty, but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference.

They must be eco seat heaters that cycle normally, just a bit more frequently than when they were broken.

Other cars I've been in they stay on like sitting on a radiator.

They need the car for a day or two, and take the seat apart to replace the cushion heater unit.

Yes, I got them to replace both as both were the same problem.

They cycle on and off every few minutes now, keeping you warm rather than hot. Before the fix, they were cool for a long time before cycling on once and then off.

Maybe when the weather gets colder they might feel better, I've only had the chance to use them on cooler mornings over the summer since they were fixed.

Mine was all done within a couple of weeks.

The parts only took a few days and the dealer handled the warranty claim.

I only had to pay for the optional excess waiver on the loan car.

They had my car for a couple of days, as there is a fair amount of labour involved so they weren't sure they could do both seats in one day.

The fact it is a warranty claim has no bearing on the supply of parts.
