    Use some stain remover and a brush, then wipe with a warm cloth (you will need a few by the looks of it). Wait for the suede to dry, then cut any bobbles of with some scissors or a razor blade.

    the leather, Use Gliptone cleaner and conditioner. Do not use the conditioner on cracked or torn leather

    Are they leather or cloth?? Sorry cant really tell from the pic..
    If they are cloth just nice warm soapy water and plenty of elbow grease.. Just make sure to use a soft sponge or a cloth, nothing too abrasive as will make it go all bally like a woolie jumper..
    No astra at the moment, have a Vw golf 1.9Tdi, but watch this space...

    They're half leather half suede. The grubby white bits are suede.

    Is that just household stain remover or a special one?The leather is fine,just the suede.

    Just a household stain or spot remover such as Vanish etc.

    Normally I would say do the leather anyway as you'd be suprised, but with that Driver's bolster, using the conditioner could further damage to it. But when the time comes to clean it (and the leather has been repaired), the Gliptone is the best you can get IMO.
