Lightbulb Heated Seat Upgrade Doc Now Online

I recently completed a heated seat upgrade for my '97 Boxster, which I documented at the URL listed below. I hope this makes it easier for anyone else that may wish to pursue it.

Thanks.

I do HTML by hand, so I didn't start with anything that will easily convert to pdf. The pages are formated so that they should print pretty well. Are you wanting something that has the larger photos and text combined?

Acrobat can convert an HTML page to a PDF. You just give it the URL.

Thanks Yoseif. I have Acrobat, but didn't know I could feed it a URL. Guess I'm missing the point of converting the HTML page to a PDF. It should print about the same right? That's why I asked about the larger photos. If that's the goal, then I expect I'd need to reformat it in Word/XPress/PageMaker and then convert to PDF.

PDF is nice

because then you have one file that you can save. Then if you need it you have it and do not have to go looking for a web page that may or may not still exist.

Again great document. Converted it to pdf without any problems.

Great document. Nice detail on the details. A before and after picture would be nice. I really wish I had heated seats for the same reasons.

HNY!

Wonder what differ's for a '00 versus a '97

Any ideas on what if anything would be different in conducting a heated seat upgrade on a y2k S versus your '97?

The differences I'm aware of are noted within each of the relevant sections of the document. From memory, I can recall a couple.
1. Lid release is electric buttons on later models, so pulling that out is slightly different.
2. Part numbers for the finish on some trim pieces (e.g. switches) may differ year to year.
3. Taking the dash apart may require more effort if you have items in the lower two cubby hole slots.
4. Locations on the fuse panel and/or bridge plug (relay) may be different. Make sure you get a wiring diagram for your year.

I would recommend reading through the whole document before starting anything. Most of it should be the same, but you'd be better off to learn of anything before starting.
