How common is it for these to burn out? > Anyway, the cost of repair would come to some £500 to £600 if I remember As MH said. I did both drivers seats on my 9000's in a couple of hours. One on an Aero and the other cloth. The only difference with the aero is that you have to move the seat control box out of the way. There's only half a dozen or so retaining clips that hold the leather down, just lift it up and look for the burn mark. Scrape back the fabric a little, solder in a very short lenth of wire (I did this to avoid the solder joint becoming stressed) and then recover and fit. Really quite a quick job.
