Interior Care

Dashboard Precautions

Prevent caustic solutions such as perfume and cosmetic oils from contacting the dashboard. They'll damage and discolor it.

If these solutions get on the dashboard, wipe them off immediately.

CAUTION.

Do not use glazing agents.

Glazing agents contain ingredients which may cause discoloration, wrinkling, cracks and peeling.

Cleaning the Upholstery and Interior Trim

Vinyl

Remove dust and loose dirt from vinyl with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.

Clean vinyl with a leather-and-vinyl cleaner.

Leather*

* Some models.

Real leather isn't uniform and may have scars, scratches, and wrinkles. Clean it with a leather cleaner or mild soap.

Wipe it with a damp soft cloth; then dry and buff it with a dry soft cloth.

Fabric

Remove dust and loose dirt from fabric with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.

Clean it with a mild soap solution good for upholstery and carpets. Remove fresh spots immediately with a fabric spot cleaner.

To keep the fabric looking clean and fresh, take care of it. Otherwise its color will be affected, it can be stained easily, and its fire-resistance may be reduced.

CAUTION.

Use only recommended cleaners and procedures. Others may affect appearance and fire-resistance.

Piano black panel *

* Some models.

The following parts are fitted with panels that have been treated with a special coating that resists scratching.

Center panel
When the panel needs to be cleaned, use a soft cloth to wipe off dirt from the surface.

NOTE.

Scratches or nicks on the panels resulting from the use of a hard brush or cloth may not be repairable.

Cleaning the Lap/Shoulder Belt Webbing

Clean the webbing with a mild soap solution recommended for upholstery or carpets. Follow instructions. Don't bleach or dye the webbing; this may weaken it.

After cleaning the belts, thoroughly dry the belt webbing and make sure there is no remaining moisture before retracting them.

WARNING.

Have an Authorized Mazda Dealer replace damaged seat belts immediately:
Using damaged seat belts is dangerous. In a collision, damaged belts cannot provide adequate protection.

Cleaning the Window Interiors

If the windows become covered with an oily, greasy, or waxy film, clean them with glass cleaner. Follow the directions on the container.

CAUTION.

Don't scrape or scratch the inside of the rear window. You may damage the rear window defroster grid.
