Any ideas how to fix these scratches? My little boy scratched the passenger back seat, I've tried to wash it but looks like are permanent scratches. Thank you.

Artistic fellow! There are various leather repair kits that might help or a leather restoration shop could probably assist!

I would try some good quality cleaner and conditioner, I use I think it's called luxall or something like that. If that didn't work try restoration shop.

Back when child abuse was considered good parenting, I grew up in late 60s and early 70s if I had done that to my dad's car, I don't want to think what kind of trouble I would have been in. :banghead:

Oh yeah. You want to believe it. In those days cadillacs didn't even come with leather as standard equipment.

If the conditioner doesn't work I'd try shoe polish.
Thanks....will try the conditioner, if not leather touchup paint.

The other side of this if you can't repair or recondition it and it really bothers you, I think one could find a used rear seat in a salvage yard for a decent price. It's black it appears which is the most common color. I don't think the diesel leather interior is any different than gas car with leather. There is a website called car-part.com, I just did a search and found one here in Indy for $100. Don't know what the condition is, my back seat has never been used so perhaps others use it like I do. Just a thought.

He did it with his boots, I believe there were small stones on the bottom of his shoes

It's the front passenger seat, back face of the seat.

Hopefully it blends when you condition it. You could also try a permanent black marker on a very small spot and take a cloth and see if it blends...as a child I remember I rode my sting ray bike into a small camper we just got and the bolt on the handle bars put a small hole in the side of the camper, it was aluminum and really couldn't be repaired without replacing the side panel. Stuff happens.

Thanks....it's not a big deal but aesthetically doesn't look nice at all.

Go to a shoe store and purchase some leather dye. Use a tooth pick and very carefully trace the scratches. After it dries, use your favorite leather conditioner. I would not use shoe polish though as it comes back off when you use the seat due to body heat remelting the wax.

Thanks Blasirl, that's a good one.

The good part with it being on back of seat, it won't get any wear to speak of. So any solution that takes your eye off the contrast should work fine.
