Unhappy Leather Tear Needs A Fixin'

I have a small cut in my leather on the back door panel. Other then buying a whole new armrest, what can I do?

Has anyone used any good leather repair kits? Leather Magic?

Attached are some pictures...

Leather repair

Check out the leather repair FAQ at www.carcareonline.com. It won't be easy.

Not Sure how it happened...

Probably when I was moving something...

Anyone know of a good place I could take it, in Southern California?

We have a "leather guy" that comes by the dealership every week to make various interior repairs and touch ups, and I'm pretty sure he could fix something like that. You should check with the service department or used car manager at your local dealer-- I'm sure they have someone that they used to fix their cars, and it is usually a great deal cheaper than replacing anything.

Great Idea, I never thought of that! I'll check into it and let you know how it goes.
