seat base access


Asked by May 31, 2017 at 10:21 PM about the 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL 320

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

SL320 while the leather was being repaired, the installer broke the seat
heater line, Does the metal base separate from the rest to access the wires
and repair?

1 Answer


those of interested here's how I did it, sit on the leather side and pull the leather cover from the track starting from the longest side. To access the electrical wire pull the felt like padding from the rear up and rewire. As long as you have the cover off, stretch the springs equally all around and reverse the process. Good luck
