Hi all
Just back from a holiday in Cornwall to discover that I must have caught the leather on the rear door with a suitcase! It’s dug into it and taken a couple of chunks out of it. I’m gutted any tips or advice please re making it look better/repair??
Thanks

Ooooh, that's nasty. Try the Repair Shop on BBC, they seem to get all the best repair specialists. Certainly needs a repair by someone who knows what they're doing but I've no idea how that be done - might need to replace the whole panel, or at least cut the top part out of a scrapped panel perhaps.

Further up the creek.
Try the Repair Shop on BBC,

What a great reply. The owner will now be emailing the BBC! What a great forum with such knowledgeable and helpful members!

To the OP: You may be better sourcing a used rear door trim. It will be cheaper that trying to repair the moulded plastic/leathercloth.

Patience and contact adhesive but you'll always know it's there. Some of the smart repair guys can fix interior problems not just exterior paint so worth ringing around. Maybe even talk to your local dealer and ask if they have a tame smart repair agent they use? Nothing to lose.

Obviously reading posts is not your strong point.......... Try reading all of it before having a go at sarcasm and you might learn something.

I've got a couple scratches from mis handling the rear cover beam on my Sportbrake, but not as serious as yours. I've ordered a repair kit from https://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/ And they should be able to give you some advice if you send them a photo. They also have a mobile service and might be able to do it on site for you. They have a good reputation and could be a solution.
