How To Fix Auto Seat Holes By Using A Leather Car Seat Repair Kit

By Jill Faulkner

Fixing those holes in automobile seats which are created from the said material need not be done by one technician. Also, if the seats happen to be broken, replacing this is not required. You would just need the leather car seat repair kit, that can allow you to have repairs done yourself, which may save both time and even money.

Before you start to do this process on your own using this product, you should first confirm that the ones to be repaired are made of leather, not vinyl. This is because they often look the same. If you find that it is made of vinyl, then you will need another kind of product to have it fixed.

The next step is looking for this kind of product in shops dedicated to vehicle products or hardware shops. The said item needs to have adhesive, sandpaper, a patch, as well as a dye. The next step is checking the patch in that product to be sure that the texture as well as the grain on it matches the pattern on the seats.

This allows your patch to blend seamlessly and will not be too obvious to people who will look at it. Once you have done this step, you should trim edges which happen to be rough or even flaps from a hole that is in one of the seats. Remember to have that spot cleaned first.

So the spot is cleaned, utilize a cotton ball that happens to be dipped in alcohol. Ensure of having that spot wiped off through making use of a towel which is damp and having it dried. You should next cut one patch of the appropriate size from that leather which is inside your kit.

That patch must overlap the said hole by maybe one inch or even half of it. By the time you have done the said step, smooth that adhesive that is right near that hole. The next step is putting the trimmed type of patch right before smoothing on such edges. The area should be made to dry overnight.

You should then sand around the said edges so excess glue will be removed. You must next smooth out the edges on the patch which happen to be rough. Have this process repeated again if you need to in order to fill in the edges deemed to be rough. Then you should match the color it happens to have via making use of dye which is part of the product you happen to have bought.

Have the shade smoothed evenly on the area that is patched through the use of a cloth that is smooth. The area should be allowed to dry. Then you should lightly buff off excess color using the cloth that is soft. This process should be repeated if needed.

To cap things off, have the seat conditioned and sealed through the use of conditioner, which may be in the product that you have. When having the hole fixed through the use of a leather car seat repair kit, you should avoid doing so in weather that is cold or in a garage. If this has to be done immediately, then warm the vehicle up.
