Picked up my Caddy yesterday after the water tank that was inside was "drained" and removed... I wasn't aware the tank was mostly drained into the passenger rear footwell which then soaked and splashed into the front footwell and soaked the underlay...

Gave me a good excuse to give it a deep clean though!

Replaced one dodgy led in heater controls, wired in the 2 wires on the back for heated seat control while there.
Took passenger door panel off to retrieve the broken window switch. Made up switch for internal tailgate release.
All before 9:30. That’s me done for the day :)

Productive time by the sounds of it!

Thinking of adding heated seats to mine...

Whats the wiring like for fitment? I'm guessing a Touran loom/switches will work?

Last time I looked at heated seats, it was for a Mk4 Golf and seemed a bit complex without a custom retro-fit loom.

@acalamita, the heater controls you need to find the same style as the ones you have but that have seat buttons.
Wiring is dependent on the seats. Removing a loom from another car would be a nightmare. If the seats are from anything other than most vw, you need a module from a vw to control them.

Great pictures there Dickiefree. That sunset looks special.
I’ve done sod all to my van for a long time, so this is about the only contribution I have to make to this thread at the moment.
