Tear on leather seat :(

is there a way to do a warranty claim on a very slight tear on the leather inserts? i just noticed it this morning while wiping the rear left seat (rear luxury seat package) and a 1" slight tear surfaced, its a very slight tear where if u put a little pressure, it almost disappears, but does show if u look for it. as far as i remember, the rear left seat was only sat upon twice as my rear passenger always takes the right seat.

im looking at some sort of goodwill warranty on this since i really have no clue how it came about, or if it was there in the first place. my car just crossed 1000 miles and 2 months old since bnew.

any thoughts????

They should cover that on a new car...In any event I assure you that once its fixed you will never even be able to tell a tear was ever there...If the dealer wont cover it I would still have them get it repaired.

You can probably have that repaired by a leather repair man for less than $100.

That will be a warranty claim, no doubt about it.

I had a similar problem occur when the dealer installed the iPod interface in my M6. A mechanic somehow made a small cut in the leather on the dash. The dealer had it repaired by their leather repair expert and now you couldn't tell it ever happened.
