i could get it the main interface for £47 next day from caraudiosecurity.com

There are some on flebay i am keeping my eye on...
They're obviously more popular now than when i had to get mine, which was a good few years back.

I had to wait an eternity, had a vision of a wee Japanese bloke bringing it over here in a rickshaw.   :)

i have the Alpine KWE-871E

After contacting Alpine UK it appears I also need a KCE-870B - Main Interface which is £47 ! †:o

It seams the spare white connector on the 817E goes to this box, then the box connects to the H/U.

This is what i have at the moment, but i think i need the £47 adaptor †:-/

That's right.

I remember that number, that's the same number as the interface i had.

Like i said in a previous post, you might have to wait a while for them to get it though. †:(

It took me an eternity to get mine when i ordered it.

Had to come from Japan, apparently. Try speaking to Alpine UK and see what they have to say for themselves.

I had an Alpine fitted to my Veccy.

The adaptor plugged straight in no probs. Are you sure you have the correct one?

The reason i'm asking is cos mines was specifically for a Vectra, not all Vauxhalls, i also had to state the year of the car too. Maybe you need the same for the Omega.

Unless Alpine have changed things and now only do a universal adapter.  :o

Can you not put a sticky (velour style) heater pad under the exsisting leather pad??
You could try, i'm not sure how effective it would be though. The leather pad/cushion is quite thick.  :-/

The pocket on the back of passenger seat is hanging off on one side thats why i was interested. I know the heaters work on the rear seats as the kids have been trying to toast each other.
If these seats are the same as my 96 P reg elite, you don't need to take the seat out to fix the broken pocket.
The pocket is fixed to a plastic panel, which is attached to the back of the seat each with screws at each side.
If it's like mine, the lugs on the pocket will have broken off.
I re-attached the pockets on mine, using small screws, washers, and self locking nuts.
I drilled through the plastic frame on the pocket, where the lugs had been, but not through the pocket itself, so that the screw heads were hidden when the job was done.
I reckon they were better than new. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

Correct about the pocket, you don't have to remove the seat to fix it.

However, if you're going to be removing any of the leather covers, the seat does have to come out.  :-?

Yup, even in the height of summer the kids insist on having the heaters on.

I suppose i'd have been the same if my dad had heated seats in his Viva.  ;)

Not tried the heaters on mine yet but for other reasons I am interested in the instructions for removing the leather cover.
The seat will have to be removed from the car to change the cover.

It's not a difficult job, but it is fiddly.  :-/

Am I right in thinking that on the pre facelift the pad is fixed to the leather cover meaning you have to change the whole seat cover. [smiley=sad.gif]

I think it is the same for both pre and facelift models. If your seats are leather then the pad is sewn in. If your seats are velour then you can just change the pad.

I have a problem with the drivers side heated seat. The seat heats up but its like sitting on a George Foreman grill you can smell the flesh burning [smiley=laugh.gif]. Its a leather seat. Any info would be much appreciated

That's exactly what happened to mines before it gave up the ghost.  :-?

I'm pretty certain you'll have to remove the seat and bottom cover to inspect and test the mat.

New ones are very expensive, but they do come up on Ebay occasionally.

I have got instructions 'somewhere' to remove leather covers. †I'll try and dig them out. †Unless anyone else can tell you.

By the way, before you disconnect any airbags, disconnect the battery first and wait a minute.

I would also appreciate some instructions for removing the leather covers.

My drivers seat has suffered the same fate.  :( I was really lucky though and was able to pick up a replacement cover on eBay which was brand new.  :) It just needs fitted and plugged in.

If my memory serves me correct i phoned Vx with the part no. and was quoted over £300!

The heating pad is sewn into the leather covers, but i think with the standard seats you can replace the heating pad on it's own.

Was it overly warm before it packed up?

The stat is quite common to go, causing the element to burn out.

The seat cover needs to be removed to get to it though, and if it's leather you need to replace the entire cover as the element is sewn in.

Approx £300 retail for a replacement leather cover from Vx, which includes new heater, stat and cables etc.

I've already done mine, not a difficult job.  ;)
