  • Do you have cloth seats?
  • Is the burn all the way through to the foam pad?
  • Are the outer edges of the burn hard?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.

burn all the way through the cloth to the foam- yes

outer edges hard - yes

Well that aint good. A interior repair man would add glue to the spot and sprinkle clotch fibers on the spot. This is a patch and last a very short time. One option is to sew or glue a same colored fabricate in under the seat cover. One option you can try which can help somewhat is to use a pen and pick at the fibers trying to fluff it back up so it covers up the majority of the hole. There is no real way to fix this concern to make it look great or be permanent. Replaceing the seat cover is the permanent and best looking fix.

Can I use a patch like for clothes, iron on or whatever??
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 years ago.

You will want to place something under the seat cover since a patch over the top will look odd and eventually wear loose from sliding in and out. If you can find a iron on patch the same color it may hold up for a while.
