Default Remove leather stain

Some wreckless previous owner has had a ago at restaining the rear seat, making it look like tea colour!, as my interior trim is beige cream, how can i go about lifting off the old leather dye?

Hi, if they recoloured and did not seal, you may find it comes off with an intensive leather cleaner, such as Glyptone (think that is how it is spelt). I remember cleaning the oatmeal seats on my old XJ a few years ago and ending up with a patch where it removed a prior owners/dealers repair - however in my case I could not tell beforehand that a repair had been done. Cost me 115 to get it resprayed and sealed.

Good luck
Mark

Might be worth finding a leather repair specialist, I used one recently to repair scratches to the seat bolster on the RS6, was surprisingly cheap and did a great job
