While your seat belts don’t require much in the way of maintenance, they do need to be kept clean and free of debris. It really just boils down to washing them periodically. Here’s how to do that correctly:

  1. Use mild soap or fabric/upholstery cleaner.

  2. Apply the cleaner to the belt.

  3. Using a clean, soft cloth, wipe the surface of the seat belt.

  4. Keep the seat belts extended until they are dry.

To clean the belt guide:

  • Wipe the guide area with a clean cloth. Do not use soap and water – the cloth should be dry.
