    Hey Guys,

    Anyone ever take their truck in to get the seats cleaned under warranty?

    I have some stains that don't want to come out and i have the dupont sealant on the seats. Just wondering how much of a headache i'm going to go through with the dealership to get them cleaned.

    I'd expect a lot of headache. Stain sealer doesn't mean impervious to everything. I wouldn't hope too hard that they will clean your seats man...They might out of some goodness of their hearts, but I wouldn't expect much.

    you might be alright, i know when you get the stain sealer from the dealer its supposed to be like a 7 year warranty, and if they cant get the stain out they replace the upholstery...

    when I was shopping for mine, the salesperson insisted I take my dog on a test drive with me (vet appt ran long so we had the dog with us), when we got out there was blood splattered all over the back seat, and this wasnt the exact truck I was buying...turns out the vet trimmed his claws too short and he bled all over. Salesperson took it over to their detailing guys and they took it out no problem (the seats had just been treated with the sealer). They said they clean customers' seats pretty regularly.

    I wonder if the sealer made it worse . All my stains come out pretty easily . Base basest cloth though . I use tuff stuff cleaner .
