Replacing front Seat Covers

Hi all,

Im looking to freshen up my front seats. I've seen past posts mentioning the actual replacement of the seat covers, but im struggling to find much information on the subject. Has anyone any experience of this, or have any suggestions where i might source a set? All help greatly appreciated!

Cheers,
Jason

Garage
Are they shagged or would a light wet vac bring them back to life?
Mine is a 2011 and the drivers seat seems to have got a white look to it almost as if it's dusty?
What are yours like?

Woolite conditioner works a treat on the seatscand is recommended by Recaro. Google Woolite and clean type R seats and there's a video showing you the process. Is pretty simple but very effective.

Thanks for the replies.

They're not in too bad a shape if im honest, a few creases and worn looking in places. I have tried a shampoo with a light scrub to bring them back to life, which did have some success.

I'll google the woolite method as suggested, see if that produces more desirable results.

I'll keep the head down for some replacements in the meantime. Might just start ringing around some dealers, hopefully run into some luck!
