I have a 2012 acura tsx and I noticed today that my passenger seat appears to have...melted somehow. If you look at the image it looks like a solvent spilled or perhaps a seat warmer overheated. The only thing that's been on my seat was a new car battery from Costco which Sat there for 2 days. I don't see any leaking acid on the battery though at all. So confused here...don't know if I should pursue remedy from Costco or from my extended warranty for a swat warmer malfunction? This looks expensive right? Replacing the entire seat?

    This doesn't seem like much of a mystery.

    The seat material will definitely have to be replaced. With factory material.
    Find a good auto upholstery/trim shop. It's possible they can do only part of it.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    I'd guess $200-$400 depending on where you live.
