Cracking Leather XTrail Ti


Oh no! I just found some cracks in my front leather seats. The driver's seat has the worst cracking, though even the passenger's seat shows some early signs.

What can I do to repair or replace these leather seats? The cracks are quite small at the moment, and at the very least, I want to stop it from getting much worse.

I love this car and I want to care for it.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Regards,
LFaR.

Since we do not know where you are from, I assume you are in Australia somewhere.

Here is one place which do Auto interior repairs Leathercare
and they have offices in many places here.

Generally when one buys a leather lounge from a reputable firm, they give advice re the care and maintenance of it.

The recommended lounge care consists of regular (monthly with hard use) wipe over with a cleaning liquid plus a regular application of a preserving compound.

Leather motor vehicle seats suffer far more stress and wear in that they frequently get very hot and suffer from dust and grime far more so than a lounge chair.

I suggest you obtain some leather lounge cleaning and preserving products and similarly treat your vehicle.

That won't repair the damage but should stop it getting worse.

I have got the same problem. It seems to be cheap side strips and piping. Here in
SA we do get a product to fix it but I haven't tried it. I am thinking of replacing the seat covers.

I got a product from Hallmark. Leather repair kit. It really works well. I repaired my front seats and it is almost impossible to see the damage. I forgot to take before photos and the after photos do not show any detail of the repair. That is why I am not loading it. The total damage was R99.00

Will it last? I will keep you updated if there is any change.

I condition my leather seats though the previous owner didn't.

Hence on the drivers seat the piping (the seam between the backrest and side) has some small cracks.

I'd imagine there is a product that could be applied by a consumer rather than a commercial company repair, but anyone know whats available. Maybe something (resin or something) that can bind the gap...like a liquid paper pen????

If you have details on the product you used SA TRAIL, can you post a link or such?

I'm in Sydney and there does not appear to be an agent in Sydney. Anyone know of a decent place to get repairs done. Preferably around Northern Beaches, Sydney?

Re: Cracking Leather XTrail Ti


Hi folks,

In a former life I cruised the streets in a lovely old Merc coupe... Ahhh the joys of impossibly over-engineered cars.

Through the various merc forums and in talking to people at concourse days, I came across a leather cleaning/repair product line that is quite remarkable - Leatherique.

I don't work, sell, promote or have anything to do with the manufacturers, but my god it's good. It's great for cars, home, boats, horse gear... Website (USA# here - Leatherique

Australian distributers info here #scroll down# - Leatherique Aus

Its certainly not the cheapest product#s) but it does an amazing job - check through the website for before and after shots, application instructions etc. It is not a 'wipe on wipe off' product as such, takes a bit of time to 'feed' your leather and restore it to its former glory. I've just got a 2004 Ti and the seats in that are good, but could do with a drink.

If its good enough for a vintage Rolls or pristine Merc, there is no reason why our exys shouldn't benefit too.

Read through the website and see whats involved - the Rejuvinator and Pristine Clean should be enough to bring our leather back to life. 500ml of each is heaps for the first job, with plenty left for future maintenance.

LFaR, the crack fillers hey offer will sort out your seats with ease.

Cheers,

Eagle One leather cleaner and conditioner is great stuff. Use it on all our leather furniture at home regularly, as well as vehicle interiors. Very well priced, and works as advertised.
