Hi Tina...馃憢

Sorry to hear of your problem, I have no experience of Car Trimmers in your area, but I'm sure a quick 'Google' will throw up a few, and it will be far cheaper than replacing the seat!
Seats are often easy to repair, and not too expensively...
Hope you get sorted soon.

I had my seat repaired about 18 months ago at a local trimmers in Devon. They did a panel in the seat back and the base. He said they get a lot of MX5 seats!! The cost for both panels was 拢140. I decided it was better than buying a second hand seat as there was no guarantee that the material on the new seat wouldn't rip after I'd bought it.

Thank you - your seat is similar to mine. I Did think an older replacement may result in the same problem too! I鈥檒l make some enquiries and provide an update 馃憤
