I don't think thats a good idea(unless you can sew).
I had the misfortune of repairing the driver seat heater in a 85 coupe.
First you have to bend the metal hooks on the frame of the chair to
release the covering, this gives you partial access.
>From this I discovered that the heaters (plastic covered wires glued
to some type of plastic) was sewn, yes sewn to the seat and you guessed
it they had sowen trough one of the wires. The increased resistance
that this cause burnt out the wire at that point, I was able to solder
the wire together and put it all back. It now works as good as new, or should
that be 'better than new'.
Anyway to remove the heater from a wreaked one would be quit easy as you
could hack the chair to bits, but inserting it into your chair would be
quite an effort. I think it is sown in to get it as close to your
'po-po' as possible. Just inserting it underneath the stiching would
probably heat the chair more than your 'po-po'.
If you have found a wreak with a chair in good condition, why not replace the
whole chair, assuming its the correct colour.
Else auto accessory stores sell seat warmers that you place over the seat,
just like thouse things with wooden beads.
