Theater Seating Heating Pad Replacement - 2019 GT5 34H5

We are waiting on warranty fix of the heating in one of our theater seats. It was supposed to be completed when we picked up our GT today...the service folks said they needed to locate an upholsterer to complete the job. An internet video shows the replacement done by unzipping the seat cushion (after dismantling the chair) to remove the faulty heating pad and replacing it with the new pad. The internet video showed a cloth fabric chair unlike our leather/vinyl chair. Big question: does our seating have zippered cushions...which means our service folks donít really know how to replace the heating part...i.e., an upholsterer is not needed?

I just went out back and checked on mine. I didn't take it apart but I did not see or feel a zipper in the same location on my leather seats. If it's hidden down there somewhere it is not in the same place.

Thank you for looking. Iím afraid that if the zipper exists (which common sense says it should) it wonít be visible until the seat is dismantled. Hoping our dealer service folks will check this out with Forest River.
