I got the stuff from auto zone and went to a wash it yourself place dirt came up but smell is still there someone was telling me about this stuff that will get skunk smell out of fabric and it would work on anything. Has anyone heard of this?
i had a car come in awhile back to my work it flooded around her house had to replace the carpet and carpet liner (that was as high as the water went..) if everything is smelling you will have to replace it all even if the smell goes you could have problems with stuff like mold and things of that nature... i know its a pain but got to do what you got to do! good luck ... check some junk yards for used seats
think of it as a chance to upgrade your interior heh (i dont know what your old interior looked like)
Chances are the carpet AND the jute insulation UNDER the carpet was soaked and it gettin/gotten moldy. U cannot remove that with Fabreeze or topical shampoos. U will have to remove the carpet (not a big job actually), clean the carpet thouroughly and DRY completely before re-install. Clean and dry metal floor with cleaner too.. If carpet and insul. are marginal... replace both parts. I would be hesitant to reuse either unless smell is 100% out of 'em. After you close it up in a car,, any smell will be a lot stronger!! GM oem may be a little pricey. Check your local dealer on replacement carpet assembly, but a lot of aftermarket out there that sell replacements with the backing, custom fit for your car,, great time to upgrade!! Hope that helps you.. Went through this with an 02 Grand Prix!!
Ok, went to another shampoo it yourself place (this place just opened up) and the seat no longer smells but im positive I have to get rid of the carpet. So back to my question about seat covers anybody have a suggestion I was looking at these.
I don't thing shampoos and covers are gonna fix your issue. I think the money spent so far and what U will spend on cosmetic changes (covers) will exceed what you need to spend to pick up one or two seat assemblies from a salvage yard. They bolt right in, super easy!! Cheapest way to rid the smell and update materials and years.
I think you re going to find, cleaning will be a loss with the smell returning in a short time. Like the carpet, the water/smell is down deep in the seat and foam padding etc...
