Hi,

I have been having this issue for about 2 years now. My seat started to tear in the middle of the drivers side. It started right in the middle of the seat and moved outwards towards the side. I had it reupholstered and I am not sure if he just did a shotty job or what; a week after I got it reupholstered I could see the strings starting to pull and fray in the middle again. I took it back and he told me that it was because the leather was drying out from the sun and the seat heaters. I treated it with some pretty nice leather treatment and it seemed to stop. It has started to get worse and I was wondering if anyone had this problem and had any suggestions, or if the reupholstery job was not done well.

I will post some pictures of it when I get back in my car!

Welcome to the forum!

Sorry to hear about your seat issues, I've not heard of that before.

Sounds like a crappy reupholstery job to me - if it's splitting in the exact same spot, then it wasn't done well or you've got a really sharp spine! :D
