Care instructions for water or moisture stains.

Rain water or moisture can stain the perforated leather.

Removing water and moisture stains

– Seat heating and seat ventilation must be switched off.
– No direct sunlight.
– Do not use leather cleaners or care products to remove water and moisture stains.

  • Blot the entire seat or backrest surface using a clean, absorbent sponge and distilled water.
    Make sure that the perforated leather does not get wet on its reverse side.
  • Allow the seat covering to dry completely at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
    Do not dry the seat covering by switching on the seat heating and seat ventilation.
  • Once dry, wipe the seat covering with a dry, lint-free cloth.

Cleaning carpet, floor mats

  • Use a vacuum cleaner or a brush (not too soft) for cleaning.
  • Heavy dirt and stains can be removed with a stain remover.
    We recommend Porsche stain remover.

To protect carpets, the Porsche range of accessories includes mats of the correct size and with the appropriate fastening.

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 instrument panel, the underside of the instrument panel, front seats and door panels.
  • Have your authorized Porsche dealer to clean these components.
