Front Door Leather Panel

My leather is starting to buckel on the side panels. It looks like air got behind the leather and softened it. The buckel is near the single speaker on the panel. I have no idea how this could happen. Can someone please explain how this could happen. I'm bringing the car to the dealership tomorrow. Thanks.

no clue if I had to give a random guess I would say to much exposure to the sun?!? does that even make sense, no clue! I dont think the dealer will replace it under warranty or fix it under warranty. best of luck

Took the car in this morning, and my CA said that he has seen this before. However, not much. My car is out of warranty. The service manager came out to look at it, and what do you know. He is going to replace both panels as a goodwill repair. What a relief. Maybe its because when i go in for service, I never complain when my car isn't ready, and show a lot of patience. He has told me many times" Thank you " for being understanding. My response always is " you are doing the best you can, and its not a problem." I guess this is his thank you to me. I really appreciate it. The service department gets really busy at times.

The door panels are partially wrap in leather. Now, visualize the leather having air pockets making it bubble up. Instead of that nice clean look. Pictures would of been good. However, use your imagination.
