Question about 2006 Lincoln Navigator
My steering wheel has gotten worn a little bit on one side. Well...more like the "paint" of the leather has peeled somewhat away. 90% of the steering wheel still looks good. A little dirty, but still in good shape Is there a quick, cheap fix for this. Paint it, stain it, or something else. Also, please recommend a good clear/reconditioner for leather. I prefer not to put a steering wheel cover over it. Thanks.

SOURCE: How to Clean Auto Leather
I use Griot's Garage leather care products and have been very pleased with the results. Thy have a leather care spray that will clean light dirt, but very dirty leather may require an interior cleaner that is PH blanced so it does not dry the leather out. Then after the leather is clean, allow it to warm in the sun and apply leather care, leather 3 in 1 or leather rejuvenator, all excellent products, that will sink into the leather and keep it supple and prevent cracking. I would not use shoe cleaner as that leather is dyed differently and may be too harsh for fine leather as is used on vehicle seats. Also keep in mind that in most vehicles, only the leather "seating surfaces" are actually leather, the rest is matching vinyl so be sure to test anything you use on a non-visible spot first.
As for repairs, there are kits available to repair holes and rips. Many are simple and require a small patch behind the leather and the placing of a color matched "goo" on top of the patch and pressing of a grained paper over the goo to resemble the leather graining, so it looks similar when dried.
Best of luck.
