Range Rover: Cleaning leather upholstery - Maintenance - Range Rover Owner's ManualRange Rover: Cleaning leather upholstery


Only use cleaning products specifically designed for use on leather. 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 Retailer/ Authorized Repairer.


Some materials/fabrics are prone to dye transfer, which can cause unsightly discoloration of lighter colored leathers. Affected areas should be cleaned and re-protected as soon as possible.

Leather should be cleaned and protected at least every six months.

To prevent ingrained dirt and staining, inspect the seat upholstery regularly, and clean every 1 to 2 months as follows:

1. Wipe off fine dust from the seat surfaces using a clean, damp, non-colored cloth. 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 the 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 moisturize 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, zippers, 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.

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