Default Need help with installing CAN-bus seats

Found a pair of very nice, manual V60 sport seats with excellent side support for installing in the 960. They offer so much more support than the full electric stock ones. Only electrical functions on the V60 seats are heating and lumbar support. Problem is that it is all CAN-bus. Didn't figure out yet how to get past that. But I am certainly not the first to try installing these CAN-bus seats in a classic Volvo, I guess. So I hope somebody can help or direct me to a site that explains how to continue? In particular which color connection (pict) is intended for which function. I was told that the big black one (top left) is for the heating. And the orange/yellow for the airbag that I will not use in my '93 960. I replace the safety belt lock by the stock one that sits in the 960. One issue solved. Thank you so much.

I would just bypass the controller and rig up a relay to operate each motor.

Thanks, ZVOLV, that was my initial plan also. But before taking apart the whole seat upholstery in order to find the right wires for heating and lumbar motor, I think it is easier to know exactly what color connectors run to those parts. So I can use the supplied original plugs to connect relais and switches. The wiring of these V60 seats is pretty well tucked away. Quite different from the wiring of the 28 year old electrically operated seats of my 960...Shame to unravel all those solidly bound threads. Only one controller (as far as I can see) for the heating.
