After 4 years of comfortably resting my elbow on the door, I'm dealing with this and it's getting worse. My neighbor with an LR4 has the same problem, so I am thinking it's a fairly common wear item. Upon searching, it looks like the entire door panel has to be replaced and the upper dark brown part is not available by itself. Has anyone been able to fix this without replacing the entire panel? Any other ideas? 2013, 126k.

You can take it to an automotive interior repair shop, which will probably recover the top portion of the door panel. They may not have an exact match for the material, but maybe they'll have something pretty close.

Mines gotten pretty bad too. I matched my front tint to the rear tint (15%) about 7 months ago which seemed to help a ton with heat reduction as well as putting a front shade up helps. I try to condition it with leather conditioner around ever month but California still gets the best of it. Here’s a photo (136k)
