    I have exactly the same in mine bud... I bought my car with 1 previous lady owner and it looks like her high heels have poked a hole in the carpet and unfortunately it sits at the side of my Irmy mats so it's visible..... I'd be interested in a fix for it

    could have a look on ebay at cars being broken and get the carpets out of them, but a lot todo just to fix the hole but can't see it being repairable at all really

    How about a large ring cut it out and same ring on other carpet and cut it out then repair using sewing from underneath? Just a patching up thoughts??

    If i were to replace carpet, will it just be in 4 sections? Driver, rear driver rear pass and front pass, or does it come in whole??

    The usual way to fix holes in carpet in offices/houses is to cut out the damaged section (ie go a few cm into 'good' carpet), then cut an identical section from another bit of carpet. Get a piece of thin, stiff but slightly flexible plastic, feed it through the hole and glue to the underside of the carpet (lift carpet by the hole, apply strong glue to the plastic, then push carpet down onto it). Glue the patch onto the plastic to fill the hole. Then roll it to get air out and make it sit flat and leave to dry.

    That leaves the carpet at the same level, and hopefully stable enough that if you cover it with a mat it won't cause any further issues.
