Hey guys...I am looking to replace the leather cover on my driver's seat, the upper portion. The outer bolster is tearing and cracking and looks awful. The rest of the seat is great, so I figure I can get a new leather cover and have an upholsterer replace it...? I found new, OEM ones for about $600 which seems reasonable to me. Here are the particulars:

2002 996 Turbo

Natural Brown leather (code on the hood sticker is 04)

Sport seats (perforated leather in the center panels) without the Porsche crest

The part I narrowed it down to through the PET was 996 521 155 06 VRB

Before I order it, I'd like to be sure that I'm actually looking at the right part. I'd also like to know if what I'm envisioning is even possible...

Thank you all, :renntech:

Instead of replacing the whole back section. Go a interior -- top shop and ask about redoing the bolsters.

I had mine done --- drivers side bolster and bottom bolster for $100 per section -- total $200. They had to remove seat - take apart and resew those sections. I have Graphice Grey - Supple Leather and it came out great.

I tried Leatheriqe dye and kit --- what a rip-off and no customer support -- Don't use Leatherique and that cost me $98.00 - so the $200. for a great job was a better buy. The match in leather was perfect.

Good luck.
