LEATHER UPHOLSTERY

CAUTION

Only use cleaning products specifically designed for use on leather. Do not use chemical, alcohol, or abrasive materials, as doing so will cause rapid deterioration of the leather. The use of non-approved products will invalidate the warranty.

CAUTION

If in any doubt as to which products to use, consult a retailer/authorised repairer. Using the wrong product can cause damage to the leather surfaces.

CAUTION

Dark clothing may stain leather seats, just like other upholstery products.

CAUTION

Sharp objects, such as belts, zippers, rivets, etc., can leave permanent scratches and scratch marks on the leather surface.

To prevent ingrained dirt and staining clean the seat upholstery every 1 to 2 months, dealing with stains immediately.

To clean leather upholstery:

  1. Wipe off fine dust from the seat surfaces using a clean, damp, non-coloured cloth or vacuum with soft brush head attachment. Avoid over-wetting the leather.

  2. If this is not sufficient, use a cloth which has been dampened with warm, soapy water and then wrung out. Use only mild, non-caustic soap. Alternatively, use an interior upholstery wipe.

  3. Use the vehicle manufacturer's leather cleaner for heavily soiled areas. Dry off and rub with a clean, soft cloth. Make sure to change the cloth surface regularly.

Use the vehicle manufacturer's leather cleaner several times a year to maintain the leather’s suppleness and appearance. The cleaner nourishes and moisturises the leather, and helps to improve the surface's protective film against dust and substances.
