I had both my Lariat front seats completely recovered when they were looking shabby. The new leather has held up very nicely. The now punched seating surfaces are much more comfortable.

Or go with duct tape [emoticon]

Quite a while ago I asked about truck seat repair. Well, I got a repair kit, and it appears that the kit only covers tears in the fake leather. You can not use it as a surface band-aid. Finally, I got fed up and looked at one of the eternabond products I have and it DID mention that it can be used on vinyl. Well, I tried it on a small portion of the worn truck seat, and it is holding and working splendidly. I do not care of a color match, just to fix the chaffing on the seat so it does not get worse. I will be completing the project. So, for those of you who have this problem and just want a repair not caring about color use the eternabond Foof Seal tape. Before you apply it just round the corners. I have the 4'x60" sealing tape. On the front of the package it lists the many uses.

A local upholstery shop did my seats and I'm very pleased with the result.

You could always get new covers,I used the Seat Shop for my vehicle,great fit just like new.


Yep. Did the bottom on the drivers seat on my Excursion. Color and fit were perfect. It looked OE after a few months of use. Worth every penny!

Spend the money and do it right. It will look terrible with tape over it. Would you put duct tape over a crack on your trailer?
Did the vinyl bucket seat in my XL the same way. Pulled the seat out, took it apart, put the new cover on the bottom seat, reinstalled the seat. Took a little over a hour and not a lot of money. Looks like new. On my Excursion I took it to a auto upholstery shop and just had the side bolster leather replaced (where you slide in and out) don't remember the cost.
