Obstructed Pedals

Improperly secured floor mats can obstruct pedal travel.

  • Always check the movement of the pedals before driving and make sure that they are not obstructed by a floor mat or any other object.
  • Secure the floor mat to prevent it from sliding into positions that could interfere with the safe operation of your vehicle – do not lay them loosely in the vehicle.
    Your authorized Porsche dealer will be glad to offer you floor mats of correct size including a securing possibility.

Cleaning airbag covers

Vehicle Interior Modifications

Incorrect modifications may damage the airbag system. The airbag may not deploy properly in the event of an accident.

  • Do not make any modifications whatsoever to individual components, such as the padded covers on the steering wheel, the underside of the instrument panel, front seats, roof pillars, roof liners and the rear interior trim panels around the seat backrest.
  • Have your authorized Porsche dealer to clean these components.

Cleaning fabric linings

  • Fabric linings on pillars, roofliner and sun blinds, etc. must be cleaned only using suitable cleaning agents or a suitable dry foam and a soft brush.

Alcantara care

Do not use leather care products to clean Alcantara.

For regular care, it is sufficient to clean the cover with a soft brush.

Strong abrasion or rubbing when cleaning will produce a lasting change to the surface.

Cleaning when lightly soiled

  • Wet a soft cloth with water or a neutral soap solution and wipe off the dirt.

Cleaning when heavily soiled

  • Wet a soft cloth with lukewarm water or thinned white spirit and dab the dirt from the outside in.

Cleaning the safety belts

  • Use mild detergent to clean soiled belts.
  • When drying, avoid direct sunlight.
  • Only use suitable cleaning agents.
  • Do not tint or bleach the belts.
    The belt fabric could be weakened, thus affecting safety.
