LEATHER UPHOLSTERY

To prevent ingrained dirt and staining, inspect the seat upholstery regularly and clean every 1 to 2 months, as follows:

  1. Wipe off fine dust from the seat surfaces using a clean, damp, non-colored cloth. Change frequently to a clean area of cloth, to avoid abrasive action on the leather surface. Avoid over-wetting.

  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.

  3. Use vehicle manufacturer approved leather cleaner for heavily soiled areas. Dry off and rub with a clean, soft cloth, changing surfaces regularly.

CAUTION

Do not use solvents. Do not use detergents, furniture polish or household cleaners. While these products may initially give impressive results, usage leads to rapid deterioration of the leather and will invalidate the warranty.

The vehicle manufacturer recommend a basic set of products that have been specially selected for the type of leather in the vehicle.

CAUTION

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

CAUTION

New dark colored jeans can transfer their color onto leather seats and stain or damage the upholstery.

CAUTION

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

CAUTION

Unless spillages, such as tea, coffee or ink, are washed away immediately, permanent staining may have to be accepted.

Use vehicle manufacturer approved Leather Cleaner several times a year to maintain its appearance and suppleness. The cleaner will nourish and moisturize and help to improve the surface protective film against dust and substances.

If a valet service is used, make sure that the specialist concerned is aware of, and follows, these instructions precisely.

Failure to follow the above instructions may invalidate the vehicle warranty.
