Hiya all,

Put simply, I seem to have a little hole in my interior. On the door on the inside where there is a sort of mini carm rest and the buttons to pull up and close the window there seems to be a circular hole, as if someone grabbed a cigar and pushed it down firmly untill it made the little inside lump. Think it's a cigarette from my Mum.

It's not really a leather tear and looks like it will needs something to fill it, any ideas on fixing this? it ruins the look and is quite easy to see runing the cars easthetics, bothers much :(


Thanks in advance to any suggestions!

Done this sort of thing a few times, https://www.torquecars.com/articles/car-care/how-to-repair-leather-car-seats.php

You need a small piece of leather and some latex based glue (it must flow and stretch) to fill the back of the hole. Then use the resinous paint to fill the hole and re-texture it to match the rest of the leather.

There are plenty of leather repair kits on ebay...
