Cleaning fabric linings

Fabric linings on pillars, roofliner, and sun blinds, etc. must only be cleaned using suitable cleaning agents, 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 create a lasting change to the surface.

  • When lightly soiled, wet a soft cloth with water or a neutral soap solution and wipe off the dirt.
  • When heavily soiled, wet a soft cloth with lukewarm water or thinned white spirit and dab the dirt from the outside in.

Cleaning seat belts

To ensure proper cleaning of your vehicle, please observe the following:

  • Use mild detergent for soiled seat belts.
  • When drying, avoid direct sunlight.
  • Only use suitable cleaning agents.
  • Do not tint or bleach seat belts. The belt fabric could be weakened and could therefore impair safety.

Cleaning screens and touch displays

Unsuitable cleaning and care agents and incorrect treatment can damage screens and touch displays.

  • Do not use solvents such as mineral spirits, thinners, gas or acetone; alcohol (ethanol, methanol or isopropyl alcohol) or abrasive agents for cleaning.
  • Do not spray cleaning agents or other liquids directly onto screens or touch displays. The electronics can be damaged irreparably if liquids leak in. Instead, moisten a cloth and carefully wipe the screen.

To ensure proper cleaning of your vehicle, please observe the following:

  • Screens and touch displays are susceptible to scratching. From time to time, clean the screens and touch displays carefully with a dry, clean and soft cloth (microfiber cloth). Do not exert excessive pressure on the surface when cleaning.
  • Remove finger prints with a slightly damp cloth or a mild cleaning agent.
