Haha, it is hard for me to type this, as a student who is currently enrolled in a "Newswriting" class, among others! LOL

I thought all rednecks were in-bread, but I detect a little "Ghetto" here too. Redneck/Ghetto, what a combination!

Yeah well, I went to a public school here in Alabama, near Birmingham (not inner-city, but close enough!)...haha

Update - Hey all. I took the car to the dealership today and they couldn't get the "residue" off. The person at the dealership gave me the name of someone who does mobile upholstery work. I am going to call him tomorrow and see if he can come to my job and how much it will cost to get my car right again.
By the way, I emailed the people who made my belt and told them how un-happy I was that their product did this to my car that is only a few months old and not even has 3000 miles on it. May try the Lexol idea.

I too have a 2006 Honda EX-V6, with tan leather seats. I had not driven the car more than a few months before I noticed a black line that went from one side of the seat to the other, from the side panel thru the rear insert to the other side panel. The black mark was at my belt level. I do leather crafts, and have several friends that are very knowledgeable with how to treat leather. Sadly, I have not been able to clean the marks off my seat. I am so upset about this, it would be wrong to write that verbage here. I am very finicky about the maintenance of my car. I wear dress clothing to work, and something like this should not have happened. I have tried, soap and water, glycerine soaps, lexol, and at best I can only get a little of the black color off my seat. I am going to contact Honda as I now feel it is shoddy workmanship on their part. I have had leather couches for twenty years of different colors and never experienced a problem like this. My 1963 XKE Jaguar never has had a problem with the leather seats. This is not the first Honda that my wife and I have leased, that has had this problem. In fact the seats are worse with my 2006 Accord, than they were with the 2003 Accord. I also own a 2006 Pilot with green leather seats, which does not seem to have this problem. Maybe, it is the dye that Honda uses. Anyone that has been successful with this problem I would love to hear how you solved it.

I have the 03 EX V6 with tan leather. I use "saddle soap" (Honda recommended) on my seats. Works better than all the other so called cleaner/conditioners. Don't know if it will take your particular mark off, but it's the ONLY thing that works for me. Good luck

You too, huh? Saddle soap is the best kept secret in leather care. Its real problem is "image". People dismiss the stuff as archaic voodoo chemistry because it's so cheap.

..would translating your screen name be close to anything linking an old Aztec tale of an occult monster? (sounds familiar to me)

A cross between a vampire and a demon, with intimations of extraterrestrials isn't it? Legends about cattle, horses, and humans having been gutted and drained of blood. (Oh, wait - I'm thinking of my former supervisor - sorry 'bout the mixup...)
