Carpet Removal and Cleaning

I looked all around and couldn't find anything, so can anyone provide a step-by-step on removing the carpet of a 2nd Gen Trep and cleaning it? Well...okay don't need a step-by-step on cleaning, I know how to clean but not necessarily the best way to remove the carpet. Thanks!

You need to remote the front seats, bottom of the rear seat, center console and the plastic pieces at the bottom of the door (forgot what to call em). It's a fairly easy process. The carpet is held down with clips in most places. They need to be pulld out and new ones put in place.

Any trim that comes into contact with the carpet needs to be removed, center console and door rubbers. Also, the gas pedal bracket needs removing as well, two bolts ( 10mm ) and just the bottom rear seat. It took me about 4 hours to remove and reinstall mine.

I recently removed mine because of a water leak. Easiest way is to make some small cuts in the carpet where nobody will see or you'll be in there forever bolting and unbolting things. Once you get the center console out the carpet attaches the left to right side up front under the radio area. I made a cut so I didnt have to mess with the shifter or shifter cables. Also instead of messing with the gas pedal bracket just make a slit hidden way up under the dash to get the carpet out. Even better both the seat belt bottom bolts would need to come out... unless of course you make some small cuts which are again hidden behind trim pieces and never noticed.

What did you cut? Mine was already split up there. Also, it only takes ten minutes ( if that ) to undo the two bolts on the pedal bracket, and the two seat belt anchors.

Here's what the carpet looks like once removed, as you can see there's nothing to cut under the center of the dash:

see how the front area where the shifter goes your foam is all torn up, my carpet section in that area was attached making so I would have needed to disconnect the shift cables to pull it up and over... I cut it so it is open like yours now. The main reason I didn't undo the seatbelts and gas pedal bracket was first because IIRC I don't have a giant star bit to undo the seatbelt bolts, but mainly because I only took my carpet out to fix/find a water leak and pulled to carpet out and put the seats back in so I could drive it still. Went very quick.

edit: i can tell our carpet isn't the same, you have a foot pad on the driverside, mine doesn't

Well I dismantled the entire interior. My back hurts. But now I have a clean carpet and clean seats and clean everything! Quite nice actually. Thanks for the help folks! Took me a good 4 or 5 hours though...
