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.
