How to remove carpet

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have access to tech instructions on how to remove the carpet? We had some flooding here in Houston area and some water leaked in through the door seals into the floor foot wells.

 

I assume I will need to take the front and rear seats out, as well as the center console, but how do I can that center console out? I want to try and go into this with instructions so I don't break any clips and other plastic stuff.

What year? I had my whole 2013 interior gutter and you will have to cut a piece to get it out completely

I've taken out a few Ford interiors over the years. The console will be the hardest part generally, especially with the vents being part of it. Typically I'll pull the seats first, then the sill plates, then the front outer panels in the foot well, then deal with the B pillar and rear seat plastics. Most times you can get th carpet out without completely removing the middle and rear plastics if youa re able to get them loose at the bottom. Take your time. Assume most things pull straight off since interior trim pieces normally do.

In a 2012, there is a section under centerconsole that you will have to cut to completely remove the carpet without removing the whole dash.

I'd stick a dehumidifier in the car for a couple days. Done.
