Cleaning & Vehicle Care
CLEANING THE INTERIOR
Read individual product warnings before using any car cleaning or washing products.
Plastic materials Clean plastic-faced or cloth covered surfaces with diluted upholstery cleaner and wipe with a clean cloth.
NOTE: DO NOT polish facia components - for safety, these should remain non-reflective.
Leather Leather seats, steering wheel and trim features should be cleaned with a damp cloth moistened with undiluted upholstery cleaner. Leave for five minutes, and then repeat the operation using a clean cloth and water - but avoid flooding the area! Dry and polish the leather with a dry, lint-free cloth.
DO NOT use petrol, detergents, furniture creams or polishes!
Carpet and fabrics Clean with diluted nylon upholstery cleaner - test on a concealed area first.
Airbag module covers
To prevent airbag SRS damage, the steering wheel center pad and area of the facia panel containing the passenger airbag should ONLY be cleaned sparingly with a damp cloth and upholstery cleaner.
DO NOT allow these areas to be flooded with liquid, and DO NOT use petrol, detergent, furniture cream or polishes.
Heated rear screen The following precautions must be taken, to avoid irreparable damage being caused to the printed circuit which is ‘baked’ on to the interior of the screen.
Do not remove labels or stickers from the screen, with the aid of sharp instruments or similar equipment likely to scratch the glass.
Care should be taken to avoid inadvertently scratching the glass with a ringed finger etc, when cleaning or wiping the screen.
Do not clean the screen with harsh abrasives.
Instrument pack, clock and radio Clean with a dry cloth only! DO NOT use cleaning fluids or sprays.
Seat belts Extend the belts, then use warm water and a non-detergent soap to clean. Allow the belts to dry naturally, and do not retract them or use the vehicle until they are completely dry.
