    Hey CB, That's the ticket, drivers side and passenger side seat heating looms connect to the accessory connector C302 drivers side under the dash.

    Drivers Side Sound Deadening Needed

    Hi CB, The loom is for the seat heating for both driver and passenger front seats. Info from a 2016 post back when I was researching this topic prior to installing heated seats into the Diamantschwartz Eta and the Zobelbraun Eta: Obtained the wiring loom for the drivers side (part no 61.12.1.381.723): which contains the C302 connector plugs: pin 6 (green blue) appears to be an ignition switched live that powers an enabling (86) relay (85) (part no 61.31.1.373.588) back to the ground G200. Pin 3 (red yellow) is switched by the (30) relay (87) emerging (green red) to the switches. The single plug pin 22 (red grey) appears to be for the heated seat switch illumination: Which connects to the Connector C302: also contains a socket connector (C433) for the passenger loom plug: Seat heating (green red), ground (brown) and switch illumination (red grey). the socket for the switch (part no 61.31.1.381.208): power in (green red), switched power to seat (red), switched power to seat (red yellow), switch illumination (red grey) and ground (brown). the loom to seat socket connector (C422): switched power (red), switched power (red yellow), jumper lead (yellow) to switched power (red yellow) and ground (brown). and finally the system ground connector (G200): Passenger side wiring loom (part no 61.12.1.381.724): which consists of a plug (C433) to connect to the drivers loom: Seat heating (green red), ground (brown) and switch illumination (red grey). the socket for the switch (part no 61.31.1.381.208): power in (green red), switched power to seat (red), switched power to seat (red yellow), switch illumination (red grey) and ground (brown). and finally the loom to seat socket connector (C421): switched power (red), switched power (red yellow), jumper lead (yellow) to switched power (red yellow) and ground (brown). the sport seat base heating element (part no 64.11.1.376.034) with seat to loom plug (C422 drivers side & C421 passenger side)): the sport seat back rest heating element (part no 64.11.1.376.035) which the wires are not yet connected to a plug: because they need to pass through the seat side rails using a grommet (part no 61.21.8.050.550) before being plugged into the seat base loom plug (C422 drivers side & C421 passenger side): Seat Heating Wiring Diagram 5200-3: Just need to plug it in and test the system before fitting the elements to the seats and the looms to the Eta. The loom fitting to the Eta should be relatively easy. The element fitting to the seats will be more involved and require disassembly which will be conducted when the electrical seat adjustment (possibly with memory) is ready to be installed at the same time. The loom for the switches is long enough to fit them into the center console either side of the radio. This works on both air-conditioned and non-air conditioned variants. Diamantschwartz Eta installation: Zobelbraun Eta installation: The seat heating elements (back & base) and switches still look to be available but the relay is NLA If you are not going to use seat heating then I will give you a fair price for both the drivers side and passenger side looms. The Bronzitbeige Eta needs looms for me to retrofit this option. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    Hi CB, Snap, also acquired a battery grinder: https://www.dewalt.com/products/power-tools/grinders/small-angle-grinders/20v-max-xr-45-in-paddle-switch-small-angle-grinder-with-kickback-brake-tool-only/dcg413b Have you tried reaching out to Gary about what coating he used? An interesting article about sound deadening. I have installed Dynamat inside the doors of the Zobelbraun Eta but yet to do the cabin floor. I have some more thin Dynamat to replace the backing behind the door cards. Let me know if I can help out with product procurement and shipping across the pond once you have selected a product. Happy Easter to you and your family. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    Hi CB, Ouch, that looks to have been evolving over a few years On the bright side you found it now, not another few years down the line after it has rusted terminally Should have purchased a switchable auto Best regards and stay safe, Mick

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Hey Barry, I only ever used E-Tech for their bush press for trailing run bush replacement so unable to fairly assess their overall quality. The limited work they did for me, although simple, was good value and without issue. Nova Scotia as a Provence is about the size of Scotland but with less than a million souls on board. We are effectively pre-isolated. There is also only one road in / out of NS to the rest of Canada. Not quite the end of the earth, but we can see it from here on a clear day! In total we have had 1,699 cases with 66 deaths over the first year, so about 5 cases a day with 1 death every 6 days. We are seeing a property boom with house prices up by 35% since the start of Covid. This is due in part to people selling up in Ottawa / Toronto / Vancouver and moving up market and banking the difference due to the low NS prices, with it being a slightly depressed Provence. We are also seeing Canadians returning back from the USA along with Hong Kong Chinese escaping their bleak future outlook. Our low Covid numbers are attracting people like never before because it is perceived as a safe Provence, coupled with the realisation that if you can work from home then home can be anywhere. A $1,500,000.00 small town house in Toronto will get you a 4000 square foot, 4 bed house, on a couple of acres, on a lake and still leave you a healthy chunk of change in the bank. A bit like moving from London down to Devon / Cornwall / Wales. I have never been on the right end of a housing boom before Really happy to have moved from Portsmouth, the most densely populated city in the UK, to Nova Scotia. A great place to ride out a global pandemic, if there is such a thing. The only down side is that I have only seen two E28's in Nova Scotia in 4 years and they are both in my garage This number will go up 50% when the Bronzitbeige Eta finishes its body restoration and re-paint and makes the trip across the pond to Canada Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Hey Barry, I recognise that location, I think. Is that close to E-Tech Independent BMW specialists in Havant? Used them a few times to press out / in rear trailing arms bushes for E24 and E28's. Stay Safe and best regards, Mick

    E28 Stainless Steel Bumpers

    Here are some pictures of the stainless steel bumpers fitted to a very tidy E28: I think they look like the mutts. Stay safe and best regards, Mick
