Replacing Seat Covers

On my most recent visit to the dealership, I had my service adviser take some pictures of my seats as there seemed to be considerable wear on my driver's and passenger's front seats. I have the two tone Cabela's leather with the brown and tan leather. I'm still under warranty (3 years, 60,000km) and Ford is replacing the leather on the front seats. However, the warranty claim on the rear 60/40 seats was denied even though there are some minor deficiencies in it with some pulls in the stitching and some fading. However, it is not as bad as the front seats as there are rarely passengers in my truck. I'm guessing that in time, my rear seat will suffer from the same fait as my front seats and I'll be out of the bumper to bumper warranty so I'll probably be SOL. Has anyone else had their seats replaced under warranty? Is there any way to get the dealership/Ford to replace the rear seat's leather? Come to think of it, my steering wheel isn't doing so well either.

Sorry to hear that...

I helped my brother put a set of Katskinz in his Dodge.They turned out very nice. So if you do run out of warranty, there are options for you... probably not in the Cabelas colors though...

Your leather looks like it's in incredible shape. I have black carpet in my truck but a tan steering wheel and tan/brown seats. Sill no word on if Ford will replace my rear seats too. Have to wait for my truck to come out of the body shop (warranty work) tomorrow. Had paint flaking on the inside of my door jamb from poor prep. Once everything is set and done,I'm going to have a new truck when I get it back!

Lexol is the way to go. Wish I had started using it from day 1.

Keeping the seats conditioned will help keep the wrinkles and cracking from happening.

Went to visit the dealership/service writer today and Ford is replacing the back and bottom of the 60 side of the 60/40 split rear seat and the bottom of the 40 part of the seat. Only part of the seats I'm not getting reupholstered is the 40 part of the seat back which is still in very good condition.

Thanks for the info. I will be sure to condition my new seat covers when I get them. I'm getting my front windows tinted (factory match) so hopefully, this will reduce some of the fading from the sun.

Any chance you have pictures of the steering wheel when it was flaking? Mine has discolored and is flaking a little bit near the seams in the steering wheel.
