    hello everyone

    Looks like I have an issue with my sepia drivers seat (pics attached) after 3000 miles

    I am not a large man and have been the only driver. My detailer noticed this issue on my drivers seat. (See pics)

    Does anyone know if there was a tsb issued for this as I would like to be prepared before I approach the dealer?

    Thank you for any info

    Zip.

    Had the same issue.
    Dealer replaced seat covers and problem
    began to recur.
    The actual problem was the foam.
    Dealer added additional foam and it's
    been good since.

    Shouldn't have that sort of problem this soon. My SRT Jeep had the same issue after 3 years and dealer replaced all the covers under warranty. One of these days, we're going to get together Zippy

    Ok Dealer said FCA was to replace seatcovers, I refered him to this forum and they subsequently got approval for new foam as well

    Not sure if there is a TSB or not ? fnkychkn ?

    Must not be a TSB yet. As of yesterday my dealer was waiting for official FCA instructions/approval on a fix for mine. They sent a picture to them. How sweet, they need to find the foam supplier and "can" them! Very inadequate and they should be embarrassed that this is happening to this beautiful leather. They need to fix it before the leather stretches too much.

    I had the same problem on the driver's seat only in the same exact place. (The passenger side would probably do it, but it's usually empty or has my GF riding, much smaller than me). They replaced the cover but not the foam. I was turned down for more foam. I took it to a local pro, and they added foam. I had the issue at 2k miles. I put over 3k on the car since with no issue.

    According to my local pro, the issue is design. The leather itself is very stretchy, and they have applied it a little loose. Add the room they left for an inflatable lumber and a/c seats, and it gets dicey. I would add foam if they warranty the cover and do not add foam. Just the seat back cover is over $1,500.

    Here is a new twist. They are going to replace my seat. They think there was a "bad run". Service Manager said they did not want to add foam because the seat is certified for crashes etc.

    Now we see how it matches. Stay tuned.mmpronanly next week for the seat, HK fix and have then align my damn hood. Anyone notice how much the driver's side edge sticks up??
