Advice on care and maintenance

Recommendations on the care and maintenance your vehicle are given in the servicing booklet.

Matt paint

If you vehicle is finished with a clear matt lacquer, please observe the following recommendations to avoid damaging the paintwork by the use of an inappropriate cleaning procedures.

These recommendations are also valid for alloy road wheels finished with clear matt lacquer.

Never clean the vehicle without water. Never wash your vehicle in an automatic roller brush car wash. Never polish the vehicle body, nor the alloy wheels. Doing this will make the paintwork shiny.

Do not use paint cleaners, abrasive products or paint polishing or preserving products (such as wax, for example) on the paintwork. These products are only suitable for bright finishes. Application of these products on vehicles with a matt finish will seriously damage the paint surface of the vehicle, giving rise to irreversible shiny or stained areas. Never use a high pressure jet wash with a lance fitted with a brush, this may scratch the paintwork.

Never select a wash programme that finishes with a hot wax cycle.

We recommend the use of a high pressure jet wash, or at least a water hose with a high output.

We recommend that the vehicle be rinsed using de-ionised water.

Use only a microfibre cloth to dry the vehicle. It must be clean and used without heavy pressure.

Lightly wipe off any fuel stains present on the bodywork using a soft cloth, then leave to dry. From the range of cleaning and maintenance products in the "TECHNATURE" range recommended and approved by PEUGEOT, use only the insect remover and car shampoo, which are the only ones to be used on the bodywork.

The insect remover can also be used to remove small stains (for example: finger marks...).

Always have paint repairs done by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.
