Ford Fusion. Seat Heater Mat Removal. General Procedures

NOTE: During installation, it is allowable to adhere a new heater mat to any adhesive left behind on the foam.

NOTE: Typical seat cushion foam and heater mat shown, other seat cushion/backrest foam and heater mats are similar.

  1. Acquire an automotive upholstery steamer with the following specifications.
    1 Minimum 1 liter capacity
    2 1300 – 1500 watts
    3 Wide, T-Shaped, high durability plastic or metal (aluminum) steamer head
  1. Remove the seat cushion or backrest cover. Refer to the appropriate procedure in this or one of the other 501-10 sections.
  1. Set up the commercially available steamer following the instruction sheet provided with the equipment.
  1. Purge any water out of the steamer line and head before placing the steamer head on the heater mat.
  1. NOTE: Only the areas with adhesive need to be steamed. Look at the back of the new heater mat or place a finger between the heater mat and foam to find the locations.

    To soften the adhesive, locate 1 adhesive strip in a section of the foam, place the steamer head at one end of the heater mat and apply steam to that area for approximately 15 seconds before pulling on the heater mat.
