Scratch / mark on leather steering wheel Sign In

We have a brand new 2018 Toyota Rav 4. My brother in law used the car and now there is some sort of scratch or mark across the steering wheel. I don't know much about cars - I think it's leather. Is there any way to get this out? Maybe some type of product we can put on it? Or is possible to replace this middle part (horn/airbag cover I guess)? Thank you.

I've attached pics. Kind of hard to see. The mark goes almost horizontal across the middle.

Yes, it looks like something got dragged across the surface. It's not that bad. You can forget replacing it as that is the airbag and you would be looking at $1,000 or more.

Put some leather dressing on it and that may hide it a little.
