Hello there, I am actually new to this Forum, I have a 2012 SD4.
I am seeking for your help because last week I took the car to a detailed car wash and apparently the guy in charge tried to clean the leather by a strong product that melted the passenger seat leather...The problem is that I didn't notice it when I took the car back, the day after I was going to work and I've seen this big hole in the seat.... I went back to the owner of the car wash to complain he said that it is not their fault.
I attached a photo of the disaster, do you guys know how to fix it without replacing the leather of the whole seat ?
Thanks a lot in advance !!

Trust me this was the same first reaction I had when I discovered it...It looks like it !! But they kept saying that they didn't touch it. :(

Sorry, I can't advise of fixing or getting any proof they did it by their actions, hopefully someone will be along to offer some advice.

I was going to suggest seeing a specialist that can work wonders with leather. I have watched TV programs in the UK where they refurbish old cars, and they take the seats to leather experts that can make them look look like new. I know from visiting your country that you have people who work with leather all the time, so I‘m sure you should be able to find someone who can help you out. 👍

Having a flip flop stitched in is not going to be aesthetic either DK!

Wow that looks awful .... my first point of call would be the opticians if you didn’t notice that.... then small claims court threat usually works 😱
