Options for fixing 2008 ex35 driver seat cover?

Postby jinsuk » Sat Apr 20, 2019 4:22 pm

Hi, my leather on the driver seat is cracked and I actually had a reupholster person kind of hide the cracks so it was less noticeable. But I can't stop looking at the cracks and was wondering if there were alternative options I could take.

For example am I able to just buy the leather cover from an Infiniti dealership or something? Or find it at a junk yard?

Am I even able to replace the cover of the Infiniti seats? Do I need to replace the whole part of the seat cushion as well?

Has anyone gone through this experience? Would you be able to explain how I would go about replacing this seat cover/cushion?

Sometimes it requires an upholsterer to redo the leather cover on seats and it is easier to just replace the entire seat. Youre about 1.5 months too late. There was a poor ex35 in the junkyard here with decent leather seats recently. It is long gone.

Your best bet is to find people selling ex35/qx50 parts on ebay, usualyl theyre parting out the car. I would find one selling a random part, usually they have a picture of the wrecked car. You can message them and ask them about the seats... good luck

Thanks, I ordered a part via ebay and found the manual to install.
