Wear on steering wheel

After cleaning my steering wheel and being a bit too rough in a couple of areas it appears i have worn through the top of the leather, being a newish car i would like to get it in top condition once again, Judy do you have anything can remedy this or is it a re trim jobby.

Think you are being a little harsh on yourself there Pete. I'd expect something like a steering wheel to stand up to some degree cleaning.

I'm only ever going to use very, very light pressure in future as I seem to have done something very similar on my gear stick not so long ago. Hope you get sorted

You dont have to tell the dealer that.
Consumer Rights Act not fit for purpose.
