Default heated seat electrical short

Has anyone encountered this? The heated seat (driver side) in my 2003 VW Passat 1.8T has had some sort of electrical short. It fried the coil, burned a hole in the leather seat and through a wool jacket I was wearing.

Same thing!! I had this to mine (03" 1.8T) while going to work, damn near burnt a hole in my [email protected]#! Recall my friend, recall. That took care of the little problem.
