Re: hot spot

	I have repaired the Seat Heater on a three or four quattro's now and 
each time I've added a small piece of wire to give it a bit of extra 
length  and avoid mechanical damage I've twisted the wires together 
soldered them and then heatshrunk them, I've NEVER had a hotspot and I've 
never had a secondary failure so All I can suggest is that possibly the 
solder joint is a little "dry" due to oxidisation of the wire or that the 
wire is damaged i.e. some of the strands are broken and hence producing a 
hot spot .

Hope this Helps.
