DId you try some laundry detergent and warm water? Maybe try some thin seat covers. Leather over your existing seats will be expensive. Maybe try to find some leather seats out of a salvage/auto recyclers?

Best Answer

Yeah I tried some detergent and water and it worked temporarily but the stains just keep coming back.

Try renting a carpet steam cleaner and using that? They're not just for carpets.

Well diluted tide isn't bad for the dirty sports. Don't scrub hard, blot and dab with diluted Tide and let dry almost all the way. Then take a really damp cloth and make the entire seat evenly damp. Then let it dry but the thing that I think works best is kinda funny. To clean the seats you need Glass cleaner in an aerosol can. It's gotta be the glass cleaner in the aerosol can. Really the only thing that cleans them but don't soak them with the cleaner, go easy with it then blot and dab.

    Dealer says rotate the tires. That did nothing. Goodyear dealer say needs new tires. Of course that's what he does, sell tires. Tread is still good but rides harsh and noisey. 43,000 miles.
