Mazda CX-9 Owners Manual: Interior Care

WARNING

Do not spray water into the vehicle cabin: Spraying water into the vehicle cabin is dangerous as electrical devices such as the audio and switches could get wet resulting in a malfunction or vehicle fire.

NOTE

  • Do not wipe the interior using alcohol, chlorine bleach, or organic solvents such as thinner, benzene, and gasoline.

    Otherwise, it may cause discoloration or stains.

  • Rubbing hard with a stiff brush or cloth may cause damage.

If the vehicle interior becomes soiled by any of the following, wipe it off immediately using a soft cloth.

Leaving it uncleaned could cause discoloration, stains, cracks, or peeling of the coating, and it will make it hard to wipe off later.

  • Beverage or fragrance
  • Grease or oil
  • Soiling

Seat Belt Maintenance

1. Clean the soiled area by lightly dabbing it with a soft cloth soaked in a mild detergent (approx. 5%) diluted with water.

2. Wipe off the remaining detergent using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

3. Before retracting seat belts which have been pulled out for cleaning, dry them off thoroughly and make sure there is no remaining moisture on them.

WARNING

If a seat belt appears frayed or has abrasions, have it replaced by an Authorized Mazda Dealer: If a seat belts is used under such a condition, it cannot function at its full capacity which could result in serious injury or death.

Use a mild detergent to remove soiling from a seat belt: If organic solvents are used for cleaning the seat belts or they become stained or bleached, there is the possibility of them becoming weakened and as a result, they may not function at their full capacity which could cause serious injury or death.

NOTE Clean seat belts diligently if they get dirty.

Leaving them uncleaned will make it difficult to clean them later, and it may affect the smooth retracting of the seat belt.

Vinyl Upholstery Maintenance

Remove dust and dirt from the vinyl upholstery using a brush or vacuum.

Remove soiling from vinyl upholstery using a leather and vinyl upholstery cleaner.

Upholstery Maintenance

1. Clean the soiled area by lightly dabbing it with a soft cloth soaked in a mild detergent (approx. 5%) diluted with water.

2. Wipe off the remaining detergent using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

Leather Upholstery Maintenance

1. Remove dust and sand using a vacuum cleaner.

2. Wipe off the soiled area with a soft cloth and a suitable, special cleaner or a soft cloth soaked in a mild detergent (about 5%) diluted with water.

3. Wipe off the remaining detergent using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

4. Remove moisture with a dry, soft cloth and allow the leather to further dry in a well-ventilated, shaded area. If the leather gets wet such as from rain, remove the moisture and dry it as soon as possible.

NOTE

  • Because genuine leather is a natural material, its surface is not uniform and it may have natural scars, scratches, and wrinkles.
  • To maintain the quality for as long as possible, periodical maintenance, about twice a year, is recommended.
  • If the leather upholstery comes into contact with any of the following, clean it immediately.

    Leaving it uncleaned could cause premature wear, mold, or stains.

    • Sand or dirt
    • Grease or oil, such as hand cream
    • Alcohol, such as in cosmetic or hair dressing items
  • If the leather upholstery gets wet, promptly remove moisture with a dry cloth. Remaining moisture on the surface may cause deterioration such as hardening and shrinkage.
  • Exposure to direct sunlight for long periods may cause deterioration and shrinkage. When parking the car under direct sunlight for long periods, shade the interior using sunshades.
  • Do not leave vinyl products on the leather upholstery for long periods.

    They may affect the leather quality and coloring. If the cabin temperature becomes hot, the vinyl may deteriorate and adhere to the genuine leather.

Plastic Part Maintenance

CAUTION Do not use polishing agents.

Depending on the product ingredients, they could cause discoloration, stains, cracks or peeling of the coating.

Instrument Panel Top Maintenance

1. Wipe the soiled area with a soft cloth soaked in a mild detergent (approx.5%) diluted with water.

2. Wipe off the remaining detergent using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

Panel Maintenance

If a panel becomes soiled, wipe it off with a soft cloth soaked in clean water and thoroughly wrung out.

If some areas require further cleaning, use the following procedure:

1. Wipe the soiled area with a soft cloth soaked in a mild detergent (approx.5 %) diluted with water.

2. Wipe off the remaining detergent using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

NOTE Be particularly careful when cleaning shiny surface panels and metallic parts such as plating as they can be scratched easily.

Active Driving Display Maintenance

The dust-proof sheet has a coating. When cleaning, do not use a hard or rough-surface cloth, or cleaning detergent.

In addition, if a chemical solvent gets on the active driving display, wipe it off immediately. The dust-proof sheet could be damaged and the surface coating could be scratched. Use a fine, soft cloth such as those used for cleaning eyeglasses.

NOTE Use of compressed air when cleaning the dust-proof sheet is recommended.

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

  • Do not scrape or scratch the inside of the window glass. It could damage the thermal filaments and the antenna lines.
  • When washing the inside of the window glass, use a soft cloth dampened in lukewarm water, gently wiping the thermal filaments and the antenna lines.

    Use of glass cleaning products could damage the thermal filaments and the antenna lines.

Cleaning the Floor Mats

Rubber floor mats should be cleaned with mild soap and water only.

WARNING

Do not use rubber cleaners, such as tire cleaner or tire shine, when cleaning rubber floor mats: Cleaning the rubber floor mats with rubber cleaning products makes the floor mats slippery.

This may cause an accident when depressing the accelerator or brake pedal or when getting in or out of the vehicle.

After removing the floor mats for cleaning, always reinstall them securely.
