I'd assume BMW would replace the whole rear back rest of the rear bench.
Evening mate, today I've also noticed mould on my rear seats.sarsonic said:
This is the rear seat on my 9 month old M135i. It's more visable when the weather is wet because I presume the air is damp, I presume. It's not a seat in the car that has ever been used and as you can see it is only on one panel of the seat so must have arrived with this issue. Has anyone seen anything like it before and do you know how BMW will fix it. Will they replace that panel or replace the whole back bench?
Not sure, the side it's happening I have a isofix base for a child's car seat. Wondering, which I haven't noticed, if it's attracting condensation.Blackbmw120d said:That doesn't look very good at all. What's causing it :?:
Yeah I shall clean it up and see what happens. The 'mould marks' also looks like salt marks. Maybe the leather wasn't treated correctly when it was made.Bavarian said:If the isofix seat base is made from a hard plastic - I think the condensation theory might be correct.
I can imagine that the moisture in the air will condense on a cold hard surface, which is fine as long as that surface is not in direct contact with the leather. I'd suggest not leaving a seat-base in the car all of the time.
