Child seat indent on rear leather seat?

Hey people,

thinking of buying a car but there are indents on the rear leather seats. That's the only thing that's a bit annoying and standing out. Is there a cure for it or should I just replace the rear seats if it doesn't come out after I get the car? Everything else seems to be perfect about it.

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that they disappear after a while because I have it in my car after I take
the baby seat out but it goes after a bit but I'm not sure if that's because I put a plastic
liner between the seat and the leather.

I hope it goes. I don't know if the previous owner has used a liner or not. But I'm worried if its stretched or not.

Worse case I will get some replacement on ebay or on the forum if some black ones come up for sale.

They definitely disappear, parking the car in direct sunlight usually does the trick

Try gentle warming with a hairdryer?

Very hot damp towel laid on the seat will do the trick.

That's nice to know, at least I know the dealer / sales guy wasn't just bluffing that it would come out. The indent was the only major issue with the car.

Thanks people.

Get a second hand seat?
