    Default leather seats

    I have just bought a 2003 model Elite with leather seats
    The rear panel of the drivers side is damaged.
    I have had a look at it and it seems that the panel slides out and is either replacable or repairable.
    Any suggestions on either option
    Thanks

    Hi and welcome bill..

    There is a thread on a damaged leather interior..Has it pulled out of the side airbag bolster??

    Try a search on interiors..

    Either that or it's a retrim.. Vauxhall do sell the covers loose of the seats..

    The panel is seperate to the cover, you can get one covered in leather (well vinyl!) direct from Vauxhall spares. About £100 as a rough estimate.

    How bad is the damage? Leather can be repaired very well.

    It is the back panel as you suggest.
    The damage is quite bad as it has scored right through to the 'white' backing.
    I was going to go to an upholsterer but a new part is probably the best option. I will get a price soon as.
    Apart from this damage trhe interior is really good.
    Any tips on cleaning leather seats?

    Well I got it fixed and so cheap too. Local dealer was helpful if not bemused as no one had ever asked for a seat back before. It was a vinyl panel with the seat pocket in. Trim code gave all info reqd. Cost was £25 inc vat and I fitted it in 5 minutes. I now realise the damage was caused by forcing a briefcase between the seats so beware all you briefcase owners that it doesen't happen to you. I am really chuffed as I nearly didn't buy the car on th strength of this damage.

    Default What holds the seat back panel on??

    Only slightly off topic...

    The back panel on my (leather) driver's seat seems to slide down, even with the seat pocket empty. The one on the passenger side is OK and will happily hold a heavy street directory. I can't see what is supposed to hold the panel in place i.e. to stop it falling down. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.
