I have a 2004 X-9 that has a few cracks starting to show up on the observer seat bottom and the rear seat bottom. We are the third owner so I am not aware of what type of maintenance was done on the vinyl up until three years ago. What can I do to stop the cracks from getting larger? Will super glue work to seal them up? I currently use 303 and Babes to clean and protect the vinyl.

If you try a search, you will find a couple of threads on this unfortunate topic. I'm original owner of my babied '02 and cracks are starting. I've not seen anything owners have tried to postpone replacement, such as superglue. Right now I'm just looking at mine and dreading the day I will have to replace the entire interior.

edit, here's a read for you

The only "glue" that will work is called VLP....that being said, while it holds the vinyl poeces together, it dries hard, and will just force the vinyl to rip elsewhere.

The answer is to replace the skin, once they start going it just gets worse in my experience.
