Hello to you all what a great site. I was wondering if anyone can help i have a laguna executive (1999) i would like to fit the electric seats from the monaco or v6. I have had a good look around and the is a big black plug full of unused wires under the drivers seat but non on the pasanger side the car has the fuse fitted in the fuse box for memory seats and heated. Also their is a light in the instrument cluster for heated seats. So is it possible as there's no plug on the pasenger seat hope you lot can help

Hi there, I would suggest looking at the donor car's wiring under the seat/carpet to see what differences there are. It may well be that the passenger seat wires into the same feed as the driver's, but you need to be sure about that before going ahead.

You really don't want to open a pandora's box if you can avoid it.

Hi there, this is a pic of the gubbins under my drivers seat and it looks like the passenger seat is all connected to this.
The nice chunky black cable marked with the orange almost straight arrow looks like the main feed,

Hello to you all thanks for the replys. Thanks for the photo leroy have taken two of the plugs under my seat they seem to be simalar. What do you lot think is it a case of just pluging them in?? Also is your seats heated leroy ??

Hi again, I don't have the heated seat option unfortunately but like you have the warning light in the instrument cluster but this is standard as electric/heated seats were an expensive optional extra, I'm not too sure about the wiring in your pics as there seems to be quite a bit more on mine, I think we need the eagle eyed Laggy to have a look.

hello again looking at your photo leroy there is more wires but looking at the main black loom coming from the floor they seem to look simalar also the the three small plugs are the same. So is the extra wiring to do with the seat and the loom going to the passanger seat ???

Hi again, if it stops persisting down I'll have a good look at the wiring to the passenger side and post another pic,

hello there thanks for the replys hope see the pics soon. Do we know were the heated seat switch would be at the back of the base of the seat as pic ? As there seem to be a blank for something there. Would it be a hard job to find heated electric seats ? which modle would be best to find.

Hi again, I've taken a pic of the wiring under the passenger seat but I got lumbered with some decorating so I haven't had chance to figure out which is which yet. the second pic is of the actual seat controls and you should spot a small blanking plate marked by the arrow, this is where the switch for the heated seat on/off goes.
Regards Leroy

Hiya fijje, your first pic is of the up and down and backwards and forewards controls, in the second pic the square button is the heated seat switch, on most cars only the drivers side has this,

Hey, i have been watching this thread closely! I have been thinking of changing my rxe standard seats to electric leather! I took the drivers seat out of an old rxe i had and found below the seat a plastic cover and below this all the wires that i think are needed for the electric motors, i compared the ends to my own laguna v6 which has electric seats and i would say all the necessary wiring is already in place. if anyone has any thoughts let us know but i am going to get the leather seats now and give it a go!

Hello to all had a look under my seat in the box this is what i found (see pic) seams to be diffrent than yours normanv6 ??? Is my wiring from an early one then as i know some one sell some early electric frames from an early laguna diffrent lumber ajustment(see pic) And part of the lot is the same box as i have conneted up just with no cover so am not sure ?? Also i looked under the passanger seat and no extra box just a big bit of foam and the three wires going to the seat no extra looms. Am thinking that their must be a add in loom if my car was speced for electric seats so am not sure if i can fit them. i rang some breaker and they said the just remove the seats they don't take the looms out so i think i would be hard to get this loom if this is what i required ???

Hello to you all think i have worked some of it out. The drivers side i think i workout were all the plugs go from the photos. Leroy the pic yous showed first is that a box simalar to the one in the photos below ?? I have stripped my car apart the only loom i have to do with the electric seats is under the driver seat nothing on the passanger side. Can anyone tell me were the loom for the passanger side come from?? Is it a bridge loom from the drivers side maybe from the big black box as i think all my plugs fit somewhere hope you lot can help so i know what loom to find so i can fit the seats.
