Thank you for posting this service bulletin!!! I've spoken to at least 3 different dealers about the seats and the only help I got was "try carpet cleaner." I finally found this and took it in for the CSP and handed them a copy of your post and FINALLY they helped me! New seat covers in a few days!! Thank you!

No problem, I am glad Ford couldn't give you the run around when you showed up with this bulletin at hand.

I went online today to see if anyone had problem with "Ford 2008 XLT Cloth Seats" only to find out this is a major problems for Ford and they have not addressed this issue. Now this is ia new vehicle and my seats already look like someone urinated all over them and I can't figure what is going on. Finally, I took the car in to have them clean, and were told this is a "Petroleum" oil base seat and the oil is coming out. This is a complete "Quality Issue" The noise in this vehicle also sound like it's 10 years old. I can't sell it, I will not purchase another Ford Escape.
Ford need to address their vehicles and stop waiting until this get out over the Internet, because it will end up out here and you can't argue with real life stories.

I bought my 2008 escape Last January. I have been noticing the rings on the seats getting worse. I called my dealership about this TSB and they told me that it only applied within the 3 year or 35,000 mile. I bought my car at 46,000 miles. Is this true? And if so is there any other way of getting the seats fixed?

Your vehicle must still have been within warranty? I took mine when it was still under the warranty but they would not replace the seat covers..... the complaint hadn't been as rampant yet. I'm stuck with mine. I did talk friends out of buying a new 2012 Escape though. Just junk.

Just pull the seat covers off and put them in the washer, I'm not kidding. Dry them with a low temp setting, and spray scotch guard on them after they dry.

I have the same stain problems with my 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid. Even water stains it and nothing will clean it. What is this bulletin that is referred to above? How do I get this to take to my dealer?
