Seat cover woes - thoughts?
Back in August I got the dealer to replace the leather seat cover on the back of my drivers seat on my 2011 Summit, it was wearing pretty heavily in one location and Jeep ok'ed a replacement. The fit on the new one wasn't that great and there were some wrinkles but I figured they might settle out with some time. I gave it until the end of October and brought it back in for:
-drivers right shoulder of seat cover was baggy with no foam under it
-black plastic cover on the back of the seat would pop off easily
-seat bottom under my left thigh would snap and pop
Dealer ordered new foam back, and black plastic cover. Foam was wrong so my Jeep sat for the past few days while they waited for the right foam to come in. I finally got it back today and was appalled. The drivers shoulder was better, but still not like new...livable though. The rest of the cover is baggy and looks even worse now. Check out the pics.
I ran over to a local upholstery shop and I'm bringing it to them on Monday. They said it looks like they did a poor job fitting the cover and they could take care of it. $150.
When I got home I checked it out some more and really realized just how baggy it is! I can pull the leather a few INCHES off the foam. As I pulled a little I could feel/hear a pop or something come from the cover as it lifted off the foam. Could it be that there is adhesive or retaining clips/pins/velcro that they just didn't connect right? Can anybody that knows upholstery or had a WK2 cover off provide some insight?
To top it off, the snapping and popping from the bottom of the seat is still there too...the only thing that is better is the black cover on the back! I think I am going to loosen the seat bolts myself and see if I can relieve tension or put tension where it needs to be - they had to remove the seat from my understanding so they probably screwed something up there too. Anybody have advice on this?
I should never have brought it in...I had doubts...never again.
