Seat Fag Burn...Nissan Cover Material (aka Seat Trim)

Post by calnorth » Mon Feb 11, 2019 2:34 pm

Hi...am new to this forum so is 1st post.

I have acquired a fag hole in my 2017 J11 FL drivers seat. No names yet but was not me. Have tried a Chip and Trim bloke but failed with his sticky stuff. It simply comes off despite treatment with his heat plate a glue stuff. He warned against brushing...so I didn't and still it lifted.

This is an anthracite colour material on the drivers seat/whole upholstery. Its the cover over the sponge base and underlying "body in the seat sensor" and seat heater.

I suspect this piece of material would be £100+ new and then fitting. The fitting looks fairly simple from the repair and service schematic.

I have been looking at this problem on www scrap yards here in the W. Midlands area. Most look badly marked/damaged and am reluctant to visit such places.

I suspect I have to buy a whole used seat that at least has a decent seat trim (cover). I could cover the whole seat but don't really fancy that stuff.

Anybody know of a decent used seat (part/whole) of the anthracite variety? I am in Worcestershire.

Cheers

Colin, instead of looking at cheap repair methods (they usually work) or buying 2nd Hand why not approach a proper Leather Repair Shop it might cost but you will highly likely get a good job done - Dave 😉
Although it states Leather Repairs they also do Fabrics :

Thanks for your reply Dave. I'll give them a call. I'd say this was a seat cover(trim) change...but what do I know? Well, the cheap £25 fill the hole job didn't work.

How's Germany these days. Was there with the RAF twice in the 60's and 70's. Much enjoyed mainly.

Cheers
