Appearance Care For Fabric Top Models

CAUTION!
To maintain the appearance of your vehicle’s interior trim and top, follow these precautions:

• Avoid leaving your vehicle unattended with the top down, as exposure to sun or rain may damage interior trim.

• Do not use harsh cleaners or bleaching agents on top material, as damage may result.

• Do not allow any vinyl cleaner to run down and dry on the paint, leaving a streak.

• After cleaning your vehicle’s fabric top, always make sure it is completely dry before lowering.

• Be especially careful when washing the windows by following the directions for “Care of Fabric Top Windows.”

WASHING — Use MOPAR Car Wash or equivalent, or mild soap suds, lukewarm water, and a brush with soft bristles. If extra cleaning is required, use MOPAR Convertible Cloth Top Cleaner or equivalent, or a mild foaming cleaner on the entire top, but support the top from underneath.

RINSING — Be sure to remove all traces of cleaner by rinsing the top thoroughly with clean water. Remember to allow the top to dry before lowering it.

CAUTION!
Failure to follow these cautions may cause interior water damage, stains or mildew on the top material:

• Avoid high-pressure car washes, as they can damage the top material. Also, increased water pressure may force past the weather strips.

• It is recommended that the top be free of water prior to opening it. Operating the top, opening a door or lowering a window while the top is wet may allow water to drip into the vehicle’s interior.

• Use care when washing the vehicle, water pressure directed at the weather strip seals may cause water to leak into the vehicle’s interior.

• Careless handling and storage of the removable roof panels may damage the seals, causing water to leak into the vehicle’s interior.

• The front panel(s) must be positioned properly to ensure sealing. Improper installation can cause water to leak into the vehicle’s interior.
