I was thinking what Fuddy said. I have similar wear at the same spot. It'* not a hole but a worn spot and pretty thin. I always have my side supports on and whatever is under that area of the leather can be felt when you press against it. And it gets rubbed all the time and wears it down. I make sure to conditoin it often and it really hasn't gotten much worse in 2 years. I've thought about just disengaging the side supports too, but I really like the support when they're on.

You're going to take out the back seat to condition it?? To take it out, the bottom part kind of pulls out and pops up. Just slide your hand under one side and pull up at towrads you. Do the same on the other side. The back rest part of the seat is screwed on and you'll be able to see where once you get the bottom part off. (It'* been a while since I took my seat out) just unscrew the bolts and then lift upwards.

So this way I can get the areas I normally couldnt have. Plus it nice to work in a warm enviorment instead of outside.

That'* cool...I just didn't know if I read your post right. But it may be a PITA to take off the back rest since you have to take the seat belts off too. It'* a lot of work.

I got plenty of time since I got laid off from work. Plus I rarely ever have more than me and a passenger in the car.

You got laid off? Damn, sorry to hear that! :(

But I understand, I had my backseat out for over a week while I was trying to figure out where the water leak was coming from. I rarely have anyone in the back seat.
