Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the heated seat switch on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. We show you on the passenger side, but the driver side is the same procedure. The tools you'll need for this include a flat blade screwdriver and an 8mm socket and ratchet.

Start off by prying up your switch panel and then, pushing the tab on the harness and disconnecting it. Next, remove this 8 millimeter bolt, this 8 millimeter bolt right here, and this 8 millimeter bolt at the bottom of your door panel. We'll just fast forward as Don removes those three bolts. Pull out on this triangle panel and then pry out on this panel from the outside and then, slide it over the handle and out. Now, lift the door panel up and pull it free. Next, pry out your courtesy light and just push it through the door panel, and then, pry out on the tab and disconnect the harness. Push the tab on this harness and disconnect it. Then, pry out on the tab on this harness and pull it free. Then your door panel is free.

Pry out on this tab while applying pressure to the back of the heated seat switch. Then pull it through and out.

Take your new heated seat switch, feed the harness through the door panel, and push it back in.

Now, to make putting the door panel back on easier, it helps to just pry out your manual lock switch. It just pulls right out. Then you want to reconnect your harnesses, and then pull your courtesy light harness through the door panel and reconnect your courtesy light. Then, push it back into place in the door panel. Then, put those hooks into those bottom slots and then slide the door panel back in place. Make sure all the clips are lining up, your harnesses are pulled through, and that it's fully back in place. Now, line up the rod with the manual lock, and push it back in, and then, replace those three 8 millimeter bolts. Now, you want the inside of this panel to go in first, so slide it over your door handle, and then, tuck that inside end in first, then the middle tab, and then, the back tab. Replace this triangular panel and then reconnect your switch pack harness, push the back end and then push the front end, and you're all set.
