Drivers seat stitching has started to come undone, seat back, side support, where it meets the seat. Coming undone from from stitch start, has to be manufacturing problem.
Car is 4 months old, am not a big fat bloke, at least thats what I think, and am very careful how I get in / out.
Dealer has said it's a specialist job, they said they will find one and get them to repair.
Question: anyone else with a similar problem.
How did they repair.
Is the same potential problem on both seats / both sides?.

Thanks for support. I'll kep you updated.

I'm sure I've seen someone else with this issue on here before. I had a quick look, but couldn't find it. :eusa-think:

Any car leather upholsterer should be able to fix it.

If the dealer can get it professionally restitched then fair enough but otherwise insist on a new seat cover. I know another R owner who has had this done recently so it should not be an issue , just annoying for you.

No issues on my 15 month old R.

Like you say, got to be a manufacturing issue.

Regarding DKZ5745's comment about someone else mentioning it.

I remember somebody? had only had a new R for a couple of months and the same was happening.

It was mentioned that this is where the side airbags are and that they could be faulty?
I don't know the outcome but might be worth checking with the dealer.
