my passenger seat is manual and i got new 'electric' seat to put in.
i read that for it to work/move you need to add a 30amp fuse.
i found a pic of where the fuse is but in b6, i took off the kick plate in my b5 and i cant find it.
can somebody please enlightened me on this subject or of the whereabouts of this infamous fuse.

thankyou in advance.

I would just buy the wiring harness from someone parting out a car with electric seats.

The front seat mounts are different from Manual to electric seats, the install requiring more than just a fuse.

The seat fuse I recall is incorporated into the B5 fuse/relay block.

the harness is the same, except the airbag.

the holes are there but they are no nuts under the metal for me to screw the seat into position.
im gonna do a clean cut to remove the manual rail mounting point and weld the seat in position.
im gonna weld it at easy access for me to cut it easily if i have to remove it.

about the 30amp fuse to the relay block, i checked and i cant find anything in the owners manual that talks about electric seats, it only talks about heating seats which already have 30amp fuses in for them.

so today i got sometime to finish the installation of the seats.
i took a second to snap some pics during the installation to share the info with others.

driverside,
notice the nuts under the hole in the floor

passengerside,
-remove the original mount/bracket of the manual seat by grinding
down the weldings with a zipgun.
-remove two squares of the carpet.
-with the zipgun stretch the hole lengthwise.
-get two standard size bolts and trim down two sides of the hex head.
-insert bolt in hole, turn 90 degrees and weld in position.

the green plug is the seat heating,
the red plug is the electric functions and the yellow is the airbag.

the only thing missing to make the seats work is a positive wire.
if you cant find a harness here is the part number for the wire at the dealer.
wire: 000979225.
top plug is from new harness and bottom is from the original harness.

i found a similar gage wire and passed it through the center console, under the carpet and along the seat rails tucked on top.
i connected the passenger seat to the driver seat in order to get the power.
i could of gotten the power from any electric accessory in the car but found it was easyer this way.
