Seat belts and seats

The seat belts, belt anchorages and lock function must be without fault. The belts must not scuff against abrasive edges.

The seats are cleaned when necessary with soapy water or a detergent. Listed below are some examples of stain removers:

-Ammonia solution; 1 teaspoon ammonia is mixed with 3 dl water.
 1 dl (decilitre) = 100ml
-Ammonia-soapy solution; mix the above solution with 1 dl soapy water.
-Perchloroethylene-petrol (chemically pure petrol); do not use this solution on wet materials. Allow the solution to evaporate before washing with water.
-Methylated spirits - White spirit
-For vinyl use an appropriate vinyl cleaner.

WARNING! The fumes from, e.g., perchloroethylene are toxic and dangerous to inhale. Make sure there is good ventilation and always follow the instructions and safety precautions of the manufacturers.
