    How to fix/prevent alcantara from creasing

    Hey Everyone,

    So my '18 Charger Scat Pack has a nice crease in the drivers seat, really the Alcantara got loose I guess and that's what happened... I noticed it a few weeks ago and have tried to make sure I don't move around in the seat too much but does anyone know of a way I can get the crease out of the seat? The crease itself doesn't bother me but I'm nervous that it will wind up tearing over the next year I'm leasing the car.

    Would a hair dryer (or maybe very cautiously a heat gun) do anything to tighten up the fabric or make it re-attach to the cushion? The rest of the car almost never has anyone in it so the driver's seat is the only one that is experience this issue.

    Thanks in advance!

    A good auto upholstery shop should be able to steam it out.

    Steam. From a stream machine like a McCulloch, not an iron and wet cloth. If the seat is smells bad when you steam it, get some sonax upholstry and alcantara cleaner.

    Cheap quality materials. Very annoying since this was an upgraded seat option (no option for real leather in the scat pack when I bought it)
