Buick Encore Owners & Service Manuals

Buick Encore: Interior Glass

To clean, use a terry cloth fabric dampened with water. Wipe droplets left behind with a clean dry cloth.

If necessary, use a commercial glass cleaner after cleaning with plain water.

Caution

To prevent scratching, never use abrasive cleaners on automotive glass. Abrasive cleaners or aggressive cleaning may damage the rear window defogger.

Cleaning the windshield with water during the first three to six months of ownership will reduce tendency to fog.

Speaker Covers

Vacuum around a speaker cover gently, so that the speaker will not be damaged. Clean spots with water and mild soap.

Coated Moldings

Coated moldings should be cleaned.

  • When lightly soiled, wipe with a sponge or soft, lint-free cloth dampened with water.
  • When heavily soiled, use warm soapy water.

Fabric/Carpet/Suede

Start by vacuuming the surface using a soft brush attachment. If a rotating vacuum brush attachment is being used, only use it on the floor carpet. Before cleaning, gently remove as much of the soil as possible:

  • Gently blot liquids with a paper towel. Continue blotting until no more soil can be removed.
  • For solid soils, remove as much as possible prior to vacuuming.

To clean:

  1. Saturate a clean, lint-free colorfast cloth with water.

    Microfiber cloth is recommended to prevent lint transfer to the fabric or carpet.

  2.  Remove excess moisture by gently wringing until water does not drip from the cleaning cloth.
  3. Start on the outside edge of the soil and gently rub toward the center. Fold the cleaning cloth to a clean area frequently to prevent forcing the soil in to the fabric.
  4. Continue gently rubbing the soiled area until there is no longer any color transfer from the soil to the cleaning cloth.
  5.  If the soil is not completely removed, use a mild soap solution followed only by plain water.

If the soil is not completely removed, it may be necessary to use a commercial upholstery cleaner or spot lifter. Test a small hidden area for colorfastness before using a commercial upholstery cleaner or spot lifter. If ring formation occurs, clean the entire fabric or carpet.

After cleaning, use a paper towel to blot excess moisture.
