Hello, I'm looking for the black leather seat cover for the passengers seat of my 07 V50. I don't believe it matters for the seats but exact sub-model is T5 AWD M66 with climate package (heated and power seats). I only need the covers. I had water in the interior from the sunroof drains and placed Damp-rid packets inside. One hanging from my grab bar fell into the seat and the chemical leaked into the seats causing them to shrink and harden. I do not believe there is any saving them.

While battling the sunroof drains I also managed to break the hinge on the drivers side visor mirror cover. It has Homelink and is the light gray color. If anyone has one of these from a part-out that would be great.

Sorry for the overall low post count, I lurk a lot.

Thank you,
-Logan

Ugh, sorry man. I feel your pain — had the very same issue happen to me with my previous XC90 (DampRid container in the rear tipped over and leaked through the folded-down 3rd row seats to the leather).

An S40 passenger seat will also work, right? Unfortunately, the one in my garage isn’t leather, but I’ll keep an eye out the next time I’m junking.

I appreciate that. I had no idea this kind of thing could happen. Hate you had to have that happen as well.

Yeah, and DampRid’s warning panel gives you no clue to keep it away from leather (at least from my recollection). I just looked at their FAQs online and they tout how it does just the opposite of harming clothing and fabrics. Right.

This happened to me a few years after I brought the XC90 back from overseas, and I didn’t yet know about the infamous sunroof drain problem. We rarely used the 3rd row seats, so they had been pristine. I was pi$$ed. Fortunately, I found a set in great shape at a recycler not too far from where I lived at the time, and spent a Saturday afternoon swapping them out.

Same, passengers seat was in great shape in comparison. Drivers is still good that's why I'm not worried about replacing both anytime soon. I've checked ebay and I can buy the whole seat but I do not want to pay that much for shipping (it's as much as the seat).

Does it have the Homelink buttons as well?
I should have one that matches what you need as I have a couple parts cars. Might take me a bit to find though as I've got a lot going on over the next few days.

I wish I had a black driver's seat as I also have an s40 in need of one. Mine doesn't have a sunroof, so the previous owner must have left the window open...

Update: MyNameIdeasWereTaken has sold me the leather seat covers needed. Still on the lookout for the driver's side visor (LHD) with homelink buttons.
Thanks
