I recently got my car back from the shop, there was a nasty leak in the passenger footwell area. The problem was evidently there since before I owned it (about a couple months) and it just now started raining so I just noticed it, however I guess there was a mold problem that developed.
I found out from Volkswagen that the carpet is $1600 alone, so that route is out of the question (I can't afford it) and my insurance company will not cover it (the deductible is $1000 anyway).
So I was wondering about trying to kill the mold and fix it up that way. I was able to remove some mold that developed on the mat so I might be able to do it.
I was wondering if anyone has experience pulling the carpet up out of these cars. I imagine that it's just the metal tabs that hold the interior trim down there in place but I don't want to start rippin stuff up without knowing.
