I was going out to wash my car this afternoon and noticed my leather seats were turning pink. Notice the pattern. A mechanic had it for about a week working on it. What in the world?

Do you wear red or similar colored clothing?

Or, the mechanic had a red cover placed over the seats and the sun caused a color transfer

He put a red cloth fender cover over the seat. A lot of places used them some still do, the problem is they get washed by the company that distributes them with the red grease rags.

What can I do to remove it? I’m getting more nauseous every time I go back out and look at it. I think I’m gonna puke. My mechanic is my friend. A good friend.

I probably should not have made this car an idol.

I'd start with something llike Simple Green, or get bottle of Lexol interior cleaner from Walmart. Do a small area first. Suspect it will come off.

Ah the old tin God. Use this, spray lightly let it soak a few min and wipe it with a damp (water) cloth.

I can’t say for sure if he did it. I had it aligned in a shop as well. I’m gonna ask him what if he used anything on the seat today.
All he did was replace the center carrier bearing so he shouldn't have been inside the car much????
