Wiring for heated seats - question

So I've opted to upgrade my seats to heated ones, during my build. So the loom for the seats will need to be installed in the tunnel. Can anyone please tell me where the loom exits out of the tunnel to connect to the seats. Does it come out of the tunnel on top under the tunnel cover or are there holes and grommets needed in the tunnels walls?

Thanks

Brett

Not sure you'll get much of a response on here as very few will have heated seats and even fewer will have actually built a car with them in. Probably a question you need to ask Caterham. If you've opted for them I'd hope Caterham would install the loom ready for you or at least supply instructions.

I ran the wires for my heated seats along the top of the tunnel and out underneath the back of the tunnel cover.  The switches are in the tunnel top forward of the gear lever.  This was an aftermarket kit though, not supplied by Caterham.

Surely, the thing to do is to put connectors in the bulkhead between cockpit and fuel tank, so that the seats are easy to remove when you need to do so.  I'd wire these through the ignition.

I have found my answer from reading various blogs, the wiring takes the same route in the tunnel as the standard loom and exsits the tunnel near the rear just above the the harness mount.
