Hi, my '98 Acura driver's seat is showing some wear/cracking that will
probably require more that just cleaner/conditioner - I suspect a tint/dye
product to fill in the cracks before conditioning.
Has anyone attempted this and if so, where would you purchase the product?
We do not have a dealership within 100 miles so stopping to ask there is not
I used to be able to get this great cleaner and conditioner from our
local Acura dealer, but they quit carrying it. I have also used Saddle
Soap and Mink Oil (shortly after I got the car) and a local leather
shop (sells leather goods like boots and saddles and kits to create
leather purses and wallets) and they had something that was almost
exactly like the Acura Leather cleaner. I would not suggest trying to
dye it, though other may not agree. If you get it in time, you may
have to live with some of the cracking in the look, but it will keep
the color and not crack any further. You will probably have to treat
it several times to get it back in to shape.
