    Default Leather seat "fluff"

    Ok so the perforated leather in my seats has a "fluff" issue! Either that or its just turned 13 and its getting its first beard!

    Does anyone know the best way to remove it without damaging or snagging the leather? Hopefully the pictures will show enough detail to see what I mean.







    Thanks

    Sean,
    it looks more like the padding/cushion failing - it may sound silly but an electric shaver/remington "fuzzaway" which will not mark the leather or a trip to a specialist upholsterers for a second opinion

    We had the same issue on the old Legacy .... removed the seat covers and trimmed from inside ... after a few months it came back .....

    its the scrim thats sewn under the leather we do the same at bentley. ive never seen it come through like that before you could try a shaver but that could pull the rest of the scrim out aswell also best thing would be to take cover off the seat and sort it out that way possibly get a new scrim fitted

    Hmmm that sounds like a nightmare job! I just know I'd **** it up.

    Cheers Dez, at least I know it's fairly common now.
