My 45's got heated seats. When I got the car the drivers
side one wasn't working. Now the passengers side has also
stopped working. A friend said I should check the relays.
When I press the buttons I can here the sound
of the relay clicking. A haynes manual for this says this means
it's unlikely to be the relay correct?

Any other ideas on what might have happened?
Cheers
Chris.

Check the loom connector under the seats. Just like the seatbelt warning light connection they can become loose.

Also check the fuse, but it's unlikely to be this as the fuse is common to both seats so if it blows both bum warmers stop working together. On my R45 the fuse blows now and again. On checking, there appears to be no fault and before MGR went belly up one of their fitters told me that it was a common problem caused by poor production tolerances in the heater pads. Basically if you have two seat pads produced with the highest resistance permissible and then have both switched on the fuse is a bit marginal and may blow.

Cheers, is the fuse one of the ones behind the drivers side glove box?
Yes. There should be a plastic card inside that tells you which fuse is which, also the car's user manual has an addendum page stuck inside with the same info. If you can't locate the correct fuse let me know and I'll have a look at mine in the daylight tomorrow.
