Why are there creases and wrinkles on my car drivers seat fabric and how can I repair it to how it was originally? My car is only 3 years old and the drivers seat is already really worn out with wrinkles and creases especially on the very left side. The drivers side seat is not like this.

Still under warranty? If so take it to the dealer and tell them to replace the seat or the fabric.

If not I would check with a upholstery shop that specializes in Automotive upholstery.

looks to me like the fabric is riding up on the bolster. The bead is already on top of the seating area when it should be on the side, out of sight in pictures from that direction. There may be clips down the side of the seat under the bottom edge. Maybe one or two have come loose or fallen off.

Do what RJ says if it's still under warranty.

If not under warranty, and you can't figure it out, let an upholstery shop check it out. There shouldn't be wrinkles that contribute to wear on that bolster in three short years. Of course, some of it might have a relationship to the person driving it. Sometimes its a matter of weight, height, physical issues, etc.

Steam will remove those wrinkles.
Use what some people use to take out wrinkles in clothes.

Bob.
