Cigarette burn on leather and suede
 
Gf who does not smoke anymore... accidentally flicked a cigarette out the window that landed on the passenger seat she was sitting in. Go figure
the burn is right in between the leather and suede part, any tips on how to repair this?

Sounds best to get a professional. I'd call up your local dealer and ask who they use for leather repair. A lot of times they will just travel to you.

I THOUGHT you could order just the material for the bottom section and replace that section (it unzips from back as well as some other attachments), but sounds like you want to repair not factory replacement?

Whats the price of one seat, im sure the price just for the repair will come out to the same thing

Can you get just the side portions? (pleather) I have a crack on the left side of the driver's seat?

Thats what I have too. We have to get the whole bottom portion of the seat. And I have an Overland so I'm sure that won't be cheap! Haha

I have a Rocky Mountain Edition with the two-tone khaki and brown seats. Probably impossible to buy it (new), and impossible to find it.

Not at all, just call your local dealer or look here :)

IT is a total waste of time and money to go through the dealer for anything. Just go to an upholstery shop and they will repair it for a fraction of what the dealer would charge. Replacement seat cover is around $400, while a repair job is probably $75.

I asked about a repair and they can basically fill in the crack from the underside. The problem is its a temp fix. Can last 2 days or 10 years... Id rather get the bottom portion, and do it that way. Lemme see if I can find a link...

OMG I just almost sh!t my pants at these prices.... WTF?!
