We installed similar heating element kits in two of our cars. Unfortunately, our aftermarket heating elements didn't wear well and failed after a year or two. I suggest you install the best (most rugged) heating elements you can find. That said, it is very easy to install them. Do as 2013 RAV4 XLE says and remove the seats from the car. We removed the entire seat cover and then reinstalled it. We used tie-wraps instead of the hog rings because we didn't plan ahead--They held up well, but I recommend you do as 2013 RAV4 XLE says and get the hog ring pliers and rings for a professional install. Lastly, we took power from the fuse box and installed the ground under one of the console/dash hold down bolts. Best of luck to you.
Live in fear, you’ll never be disappointed
