Does anyone know where I can get hold of grey fabric upholstery for a 91 W463. My front seat is frayed and it woudl be great to be able to get it repaired. I've been searching on ebay but not had any luck (apart from some crazy prices on german ebay for whole replacement seats) Or does anyone know someone who might be able to do a repair with the replacement upholstery?

Years ago Peak Autotrim in Chesterfield did mine as he had a spare back seat in that fabric, you could try them. MB will sell you a replacement cover but very expensive, or ask advice of a trimmer.

Thanks, I’ll try them. I meant to ask if anyone knew a trimmer that might be able to repair ‘without’ any replacement fabric (not with!)

Unfortunatley they can't help (changed owners about 3 years ago). Someone told me once there may be some spare fabric hidden away out of sight that can be sacrificed for repairs as it's not seen - does anyone have any ideas if that could be the case as I can't find any myself?

I have the same driver's seat wear problem. As an interim measure I have swopped the driver and passanger seats over to stop the wear getting any worse.

I have a back seat set in this fabric which I'm going to recover at some stage, can do the covers for £40 a section so you could use the fabri for repairs.
