Question about 2005 Mini Cooper
I have a lot of experience with seat heater problems like yours many times in my years as a dealer techcnican, this problem of no heat almost certainly is caused by a defective heater grid inside the seat cushion, The seat will need to be de-trimmed and the heating grid (much like an electric blanket grid) replaced, I really don't think you could have done anything to cause this while cleaning, the problem occurs due to the movement of the cushion wiring every time you set in the seat and get out, after thousands of times the wires degrade and break.
To repair this you must have an automotive trim shop (a shop that does auto interiors repair work like new seat covers) remove the seat cover (a job for a skilled expert) and install the new heating grid into the seat cushion under the seat cushion cover, the part will need to come from the dealer parts department as it is not available from any other source. The cost of the part is about $100.00 and a like amount to install it (depending on local labor rates).

This could be two different problems. The first and most likely problem is that the switch in the seat is no longer working. The other problem could be that you did dislodge a wire for the heater. You will have to remove the seat to check all wiring to make sure that noting is loose. Or a broken wire.
