Driver Seat Bolster Worn/ Fuel Pump Chirp

Hello All,

My BRZ has 20,000 miles and the Driver side Bolster is already worn out and leather is rubbed through. Anyone else have this or experience getting the dealer to replace? Don't see how this can normal wear and tear.

Also the fuel pump has a chirping noise. Dealer said it is normal and nothing they can do? True? Never mind just saw a previous thread. Guess its everyone.

Thank you

The fuel pump chirp is a common but harmless problem lovingly referred to as "crickets".

People have tried various fixes with various results. Switching to ethanol free resolved my cricket issue.

wow seems like classic wear item, lucky

Ive seen some nice pairs of seat covers from DAMD for ~$500 so wasn't too worried about wear, though they're still basically brand new (40k but careful)

lol only 20k miles and your interior is falling apart.

I was looking at DAMD seat covers and came across this...

The paint is actually really nice.
