What died? The heating element, or the relay?

Going to the dealer tomorrow. Wanted to know if it was going to be a 1 hour or 10 hours job.

Default Closer to 10.

Both seats need to be pulled, the upholstery removed, the heating elements replaced, reupholster the seats, and reinstall.

I was afraid of that. I was hoping for a burnt relay or something simple.

Default i'm guessing the element, since everything but the *** heats up and

the passenger side works fine

stupid lucky girlfriend.
