    My drivers seat heating element has obviously gone wrong as there is a now a very specific hot spot that is too hot the sit on even at the lowest setting when the rest of the seat is cold. The leather now has what looks like a cigarette burn at the very spot where the volcano heat now is! I'm guessing a short in the element. Anyone know where I can take it in the South East for a reasonably priced solution from a specialist please?
