    Default Remove passenge side carpet?

    Hi all,

    Had the old flooding in the passenger footwell (there was actually a huge puddle there!). Took blooming ages to get the water off the top of the carpet. Then I realised it was drenched through so proceeded to remove the carpet and remove the standing water under it.

    Took the glovebox out and took out the door side trims which were holding the carpet on that side. However I couldnt figure out how to remove the center console side of the carpet.

    Could anyone give me any info on how to completely remove it? I presume taking the seat out may also be needed? I'd prefer to thoroughly dry it to prevent smells and paranoid about rusting footwells!

    Cheers

    i ll think you will find that it is all one piece.
    Probably best bet is to have it commercialy vacuumed and cleaned .

    To get it all out your going to have to remove the whole centre console, from the arm middle arm rest all the way including the bit around the gear stick area. Its pretty simply just a bit of time needed and be careful not to break anything. You will need to remove the front seat too and maybe the rear seat too as Im sure the carpet tucks underneath it too. If you know anyone with a Vax that will help you along the way too. Also remember that running with your AC running when you driving will help remove any residual dampness.

    you are better off just getting a industrial wet vac and spending a while at it rather than removing all sorts and creating loads of rattles and squeaks where are you? I might be able to help.

    There are a few torx screws to remove in that trim and in the centre console by the seat. It does come out as I took mine out for the same reason.

    When I removed it I cut the carpet with a knife where it wouldn't be seen and pulled it all back.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thanks for the responses.

    Although an industrial vac might be a good idea, I feel it will just remove the surface water on the carpet. When I had a quick look, there is a very thick foam covering across the bulkhead portion which was soaked and cannot be dried from ontop as it had a thick plasticy covering (some sort of heat/fire proofing?).

    When you guys mention removing the center console, is that just the trims along the passenger side? Should be able to figure it out once the seat is out. However bobssignum you mention the carpet is all one piece and I presume goes BEHIND the dashboard? So I presume when Big Sig, you mention cutting the carpet, you mean in that corner, behind the glovebox as the carpet goes behind the dash?

    Just want to confirm before I start cutting the carpet!

    Brilliant, cheers for that. How frustrating that such a tiny blocked drain pipe can cause this! Bit surpsied though as my pollen filter, only the bottom 1/5th was wet, but the amount of water which came in was huge. I also park downhill so would of expected the level to be even higher for it to get in.

    On a side note, I have actually got the side skirts off the car atm and there has been heavy rain fall. Could this have also been a contributing factor? Currently colour coding them but the weather has been awfull so I wasn't planning on putting them on for a few days still. However if not having them on is letting water in, i might just pop them back on for now. A lot less agro then drying it all over again.
