Upholstery Question from Kelly Holcobme

Submitted on 02/03/2015

The back rest zip on the back of my drivers seat has ripped open - is it fixable? Mini are quoting me £400 for an entire new piece of fabric!!! Model: Mini One


I think so,  but you would need a good car trimmer to say for sure as it will need to be made stronger to avoid it doing that in the future.

Some of the seams on cars are designed to break as and airbag goes. Trimmers should use the special cord where there are airbags present. We do know quite a few Car Upholsterers / Car Trimmers.

Have a read of this guide to help you find one.
