I have used Lexal on my leather for years. It works well, just another idea. I am sure many of the products posted work equally as well.

Default dirty leather cracks in 2010 RX 350??

My 2010 RX350 drivers seat cream colored leather. has worsening what appears to be spreading dirty cracks. This is "supposedly top line perforated center seat aniline leather.... My wifes 2003 GS 300 has far better leather! It is twice as old and looks twice as good. Anyway looks like its unreachable to cleaning materials since it probably under the clear coating!!! and spreading at right angles to the crack. So how does one remove the damn clear coating so the dirt under it gets cleaned (Pay more to get less syndrome!) Help . Thanks.

Usually this will happen when the leather isn't taken car of in the beginning, if its been there for a while you mot likely can only lighten the dirty color. Completely removing out of tan/light grey etc.. is very difficult. You have to start conditioning the leather right when you get the car. As far as clear coat im not sure what you mean, the dirt is most likely embedded in the leather.

I suggest calling Lexus, or your dealer (if they care)
Lexus leather has cheaped out, and isn't even in the same league as their competitors.
Their 'semi-aniline' is so thin, that it suffers wear at a rate far faster than other manufacturers.
