350 SLK - Heated Seat Problem.


I have a 2004 350 SLK that has the heated seat element burning through leather of the R/H side bolster cushion of the drivers seat.

I've looked into replacing the seat base from my local MB dealer but have been quoted over £1k for the job.

Is it possible to purchase the parts direct from Germany and get the dealership to replace it or, a cheaper option/thought, is it possible to disconnect the heater element from the side bolster ONLY and leave the remaining elements still intact?

Any help greatfully received.
