Chaps,

The side bolster on my driver's seat is worn/squashed (has always been like this - previous owner must have been on the larger side Grin ).

Any suggestions/recommendations for getting it fixed?

It has been suggested to me that a towel wetted with distilled water placed over the creases to dampen them then use some heat to shrink it back will help.... not done it myself but have been reliably given this info by a restorer....

As Rich says try that , if still not how you want it then someone like Linas at DesignLS will replace the leather section on the bolster in matching black Thumb

Loads of advice /videos on YouTube, but its never the same as trying it yourself, let us know how it pans out, mine could do with some creases taking out also.

A steam cleaner is superb at removing wrinkles and bagginess as well as the sheen from leather. One of my best recent cleaning gadgets.

Great advice, thanks guys

Will try the wet towel and heat trick at the weekend (don't have a steam cleaner) and will let you know how it goes

David,

I have the same issue, did you get good results?
