    Cost to repair leather seats? 22nd Jan 17 at 6:40 PM
    Hey, just a quick question does anyone have any idea what I might have to spend in order to get a tear in a leather seat (roughly an inch) fixed? Just a ballpark figure would be good to know, thanks.
    We are buying a used car and it's great except it's got one tear on the base of the seat where clearly something got caught on it and it ripped.

    Probably 60-80 via one of the specialists who'll come out.

    Hard to say, maybe a bit more?

    Depends where you live as could cost easily over a hundred and you may want to source a second hand car seat - then it depandes on the car

    i had a little tear on my S class that i sold last year as button on shorts caught it - but i touched it up before selling to those car buying people and they did not even note it, lucky me

    Have a look on Ebay as well as getting repair quotes. In the past I've bought replacement seats rather than mess about with repairs as they worked out cheaper to buy and are easy to fit
    Remember the saying: if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is.

    HI. We normally charge between 120 to 150 for a full leather car seat restoration including colour and topcoat.
