Soft top care and cleaning (CrossCabriolet models)

Nissan Murano / Nissan Murano 2009-2019 Owner's Manual / Appearance and care / Cleaning exterior / Soft top care and cleaning (CrossCabriolet models)

Proper care and handling should be observed to maintain a good appearance of the soft top.

Improper care may cause the top cloth’s surface to stiffen, stain, or mat. Follow the instructions shown in this section.

It is not necessary to wash the soft top every time you wash the vehicle body, but clean the top regularly before it becomes quite dirty.

Leaving the soft top dirty or soiled for a long period will cause deterioration to the quality of the top material.

Remove dust or dirt on the soft top with a soft brush or sponge, then rinse it with plenty of clean water. When the top is quite dirty, wash using a mild detergent, such as a general cleaner especially made for a cloth top or a general purpose dish-washing liquid, mixed with clean, lukewarm (never hot) water. Rinse the top again with plenty of clean water to remove all traces of soap.

CAUTION

Do not use strong household soap, strong chemical detergents, gasoline or solvents.
If glass cleaner gets on the soft top, immediately wash it off with clean water.
Do not apply direct water pressure, such as high pressured water from household hoses, on the lining of the soft top and vehicle body, as this may cause water to leak into the inside of your vehicle.

After cleaning, always be sure the top and its storage are completely dry before opening the top. Opening the top while it is wet or damp may cause interior water damage, water stains or mildew on the top.
