Dk. blue MB tex,how to repair?

Have an '84 300TD w/dark blue tex,nearly mint seats except for a 4"tear on the lower backseat panel closest the door. Any way to repair this short of removing the upholstery and sewing in a new vinyl panel?The cloth backing seems unaffected,just a 4"by 6"long tear.

Check local upholstery shops. We have a guy in town that can 'weld' the vinyl together and putty up a finish that nearly makes a crack in the door panel or dash disappear. I'd expect this would work in your case. There are vinyl repair kits out there too, but color matching is hard and I think the pros do a better job with better quality stuff too.
