Talking Upholstery bubble

The upholstery cover to the stowage well armrest has a large bubble between the upholstery and foam beneath. Mercedes Benz service removed this armrest cover, the upholsterer has not been able to gain access between the leather and the rest of the fitting to reglue it.
Can someone advise on how to repair this. 2002 E320ELE

Thank God. For a second there, I thought the upholstry market was going to collapse.
Sorry to hear about your armrest cover though. Wish I could help.

Buy a small syringe and inject a small amount of glue at the base of the bubble. If that does not work to your satisfaction, you may have to purchase a new lid!!
