    I have a small cut in the leather part of my driver seat. Its maybe about a 1/4 of an inch long, but I have no idea how to go about fixing that so it doesn't open up or get bigger.... any suggestions?

    Thanks. For whatever reason I always forget you can learn to do anything on Youtube.

    There are companies that work on repairing and re-dye auto leather. Had a hole repaired in a GTS seat. Could never tell. Ask a local dealer for a reference. Or web search.

    A local dealer is a good start, but I would seek out an expert auto detailing company local to your area. They will often know the right contact for properly fixing the leather. I have come across many interiors throughout the years that were repaired by dealerships and their affiliates, only to learn the wrong products/techniques were used for repair. Just make sure you do your research. If you're looking to sell the car (which it appears you are not), a quick/cheap fix will do the trick, but if you're looking for original materials and top quality, a high-end professional will get the job done right. It'd be great to see before/after pics and share what products/techniques were used. Good luck :)
