Range Rover Evoque: Leather

specifically Use only cleaning products specifically designed for use on leather. Do not use solvents. Do not use chemical, alcohol, or abrasive materials, as they will cause rapid deterioration of the leather. The use of products which are not approved will invalidate your warranty.
If you are in any doubt as to which products to use, consult your Land Rover Dealer/Approved Repairer.

Leather should be cleaned and protected using Land Rover leather cleaner BAC500490.

To prevent ingrained dirt and staining, inspect the seat upholstery regularly and clean every one to two months as follows: 1. Wipe off fine dust from the seat surfaces using a clean, damp, non-coloured cloth.

Change frequently to a clean area of cloth to avoid abrasive action on the leather surface. Avoid over wetting the leather.

2. If this is not sufficient, use a cloth which has been dampened with warm soapy water and then wrung out. Use only mild non-caustic soap.

3. Use Land Rover leather cleaner for heavily soiled areas. Dry off and rub with a clean soft cloth, changing surfaces regularly.

Use Land Rover leather cleaner several times a year to maintain the leather’s suppleness and appearance. The cleaner will nourish and moisturise and help to improve the surface protection film against dust and substances.

- Dark clothing may stain leather seats just like other upholstery products.

- Sharp objects such as belts, zipper fasteners, rivets, etc., can leave permanent scratches and scratch marks on the leather surface.

- Unless spillages such as tea, coffee or ink are washed away immediately, permanent staining may have to be accepted.

- Do not use a cleaning product that is not specifically for use in a vehicle. While these products may initially give impressive results, their use will lead to rapid deterioration of the leather and will invalidate the warranty.

If a valet service is used, ensure that the specialist concerned is aware of, and follows, these instructions precisely.

Note: Some materials/fabrics are prone to dye transfer, which can cause unsightly discolouration of lighter coloured leathers.

Affected areas should be cleaned and re-protected as soon as possible.
