2008 Taurus X Heated Seat Pads

Post by rdw5466 » Thu Nov 15, 2018 9:06 pm

Just wondering if anyone can tell me if the '08 Taurus X heated seats have 1 or 2 pads? Passenger heated seat is out and would like to order but can only seem to find the pad for the seat bottom - would rather replace both at the same time. I replaced the pads on an '07 Freestyle a few years ago and used both the seat bottom and seat back. Thanks

Hi two pads one on back one on bottom. It's worth looking for an oem pad. I found what I needed on eBay. I've done it twice since the dorman pads I first put in didn't last long.

Hope this helps

I bit the bullet today and took the seat out to test the pads. I was able to finally locate the connection to the back pad after popping off a few seat clips. The back pad is ok after testing but the bottom shows an open circuit. Appreciate the heads up on getting an OEM pad, I'll start looking. Thanks

Update - took the seat out again which made working on it a lot easier. Having it on a waist-level work area is also a plus. I took the time to bend the original hog rings for removal and reuse. I only removed rings necessary to get the new pad in place, which I placed over the old one, cutting the old connector off. All told about 1.5 hour job in an unheated garage and seems to be working great.
