Paint on leather

There is what looks like a small white paint mark around 5mm long on my passenger seat, anyone one got any advice on what to use to try and remove it?

Hi A6 no it was on when I bought it, it is only a very small "smudge" but would like to remove it

You could try a small amount of thinners on an earbud, carefully!!! Make sure you're only contacting the paint surface and gently rub it.

You can get a remover for this. Look on Ebay for leather stain remover. Had blue paint on my Saab leathers, comes off easy no risk.

Be careful using thinners as the dye is protected by a clear surface laquer and if you remove it then you may get the seat colour rub off on your clothing.
