OEM replacement seat covers for Sport. plz help!
 
Well, I burned a friggin hole in my seat from smoking (shame on me)... I've been looking for 3 hours now for an oem replacement drivers seat cover online and can't find anything for the sport seats, cloth mesh/vinyl. Anyone have any ideas where I should look? I don't want to replace them all with aftermarket ones or anything, just looking to replace the drivers seat cover... the bottom of it where you sit on, I don't need the back unless I have to buy them together. I know they sell them seperately from the backs some places.

Any help would be awesome!! thanks

Have you tried contacting Clark at AutoAnything? He may be able to help.

The dealer can probably get you the seat bottom only, but it will be really expensive, probably like $300. Maybe a upholstery shop can do a repair by using a bit of material from under the seat somewhere as a patch. Not a cheap fix either way. Sometime you can find takeoffs on ebay.

Or hunt for the parts at a pull-a-part or a wrecked truck...by far your cheapest option.

Or if the truck is still under warranty just get pair scissors and cut a thread on the seam somewhere then tak it to the dealer they will replace it under warranty. The reason i know this is because my wife is a smoker and she burnt one of my seats in my old truck and i asked my service advisor about getting it fixed guess what he did next.

My take is if the service advisor f**ks the hand that feeds him, what will he do to "you" the customer? Character counts!!

Well considering he's a 20 year veteran in the service department, Id say he helped the customer out. This was no differant of a situation when i had my 2009 Ram and a front wheel bearing went out on me they replaced the left side under my warranty and then the mechanic told me to come back in about 6 weeks because i only had about 5000 kilometers left before my warranty ended and they would replace the right side also even though nothing was wrong with it. This way i would good hopefully for a long time.

cutting the seams so you can claim a warranty repair is fraud, pure and simple. if you burnt a hole in your seat, take responsibility, why should chrysler pay for that? no different than having your car stolen, wrecked, fire, etc., in order for insurance to pay.
