the panel has two screws at the base, remove these then slide the panel downwards.

the broken wire is right where the seat back meets the seat base, at the pivot. it is hard to do much with but you nedd to get enough slack on it too insulate the chafed area. ideally you would piece in a new wire with a little extra slack to stop it happening again.

You may have to take the seat out to do this,,the squab cannot be removed with the seat in place.

I can send you the instructions for this,, the connector under the seat is also worth checking out as these can give problems

it will be the wire malcolm. as i said it is the point where the wire goes past the hinge/pivot between the seat back and base.

the wire is not behind the panel. keep looking where i said.

yeah, often just the slightest nick of the insulation - hard to spot but that will be it.

what do you think to the sharp edge the wire chafes on then? not a good day at the design office.
