Default Dents in the seats from Babyseat

Any tricks on getting pressure indentations out of the leather seats in the forester? I had a baby seat mounted for several months without moving it. Now ive switched cars and want to get it all cleaned up before selling it.

Hair dryer? fabric steamer? New seats?

I'll try and take some shots later when i get home.

I would do a hair dryer first. If that doesn't work then a fabric steamer.

I also say use a fabric steamer.

Bissell makes a nice hand-held unit that you could use inside a car. I'll take some pictures of it later when I get home.

A hair-dryer would heat-up and effectively [further] dry-out the leather, which is what you want to avoid.

I was going to suggest a wet towel and an iron.

If it worked to get burn marks out of a wooden table, it should work for anything.

Stop having such fat babies? Simple fix. Haha just kidding

The steamer will work perfect, I used that method all the time when I detailed.

If you do get them out and have to use another child seat again then do what I did for my previous cars...

Go to a fabric store and get a large chunk of 3" foam. Big enough to cover the bottom and seat back of the child seat. It will keep it from pressing in hard corners of the child seat. Really did wonders for my cars and kept from having permanent marks, but all mine were cloth, no leather but I don't think it matters.

Problem with using large foam/mats and such under the carseats, In an accident it might cause problems due to the seat not on a solid mounting base.

Tom,

They make hard seat protectors you can get for this. I got mine at babies r us and put it in my '11 STI for 32k miles. No seat dents to fix when I sold it. They work great. It's a good flat surface for the seat and also helps with spills.

I'm currently running this new system to prevent this from happening. They are very thin latex cover for you penis
