Let the belts air dry. Wipe the loops of the seat belt anchors using a clean cloth.  
Do not use silicone-based sprays on electrical devices  
such as audio devices and switches. Doing so may  
cause the items to malfunction or cause a fire inside  
the vehicle.  
If a silicone-based spray is inadvertently used on  
electrical devices, consult a dealer.  
Depending on their composition, chemicals and  
liquid aromatics may cause discoloration, wrinkles,  
and cracking to resin-based parts and textiles.

benzene or gasoline.  
After using chemicals, make sure to gently wipe them  
away using a dry cloth.  
Do not place used cloths on top of resin-based parts

Floor Mats  
If you use any floor mats that were not originally  
provided with your vehicle, make sure they are  
designed for your specific vehicle, fit correctly, and  
are securely anchored by the floor anchors.  
Position any rear seat floor mats properly. If not  
properly positioned, the floor mats can interfere with  
the front seat functions.  
The driver's floor mat hooks over floor  
anchors, which keep the mat from sliding  
Do not put any additional floor mats on  
top of the anchored mat.  
Maintaining Genuine Leather  
It is important to clean or wipe away dirt or dust as  
soon as possible. Spills can soak into leather, resulting  
in stains. Dirt or dust can cause abrasions in the  
leather. In addition, please note that some dark  
colored clothing can rub onto the leather seats,  
resulting in discoloration or stains.  
To properly clean leather:  
1. Use a vacuum or soft dry cloth first to remove any dirt or dust.  
2. Clean the leather with a soft cloth dampened with a solution comprised of 90%  
water and 10% neutral soap.  
3. Wipe away any soap residue with a clean damp cloth.  
4. Wipe away residual water and allow leather to air dry in the shade.
