Hey mate,

In regards to the seats, pull them out and pressure wash them and then use the car wash vac to suck the bulk of the water out. Done that with a few cars and it works a treat!

Cheers Paul.


+1 with this method. Did my ex's XF ghia seats as they were getting mouldy this way. I didn't worry about vac'ing them though. I did it on a hot day and just left them in the sun

I too have done this before with Velour & cloth seats, and with a hot day or two then dry out & look as good as they ever will.

Cheers

I have always used the Britex or Rug Doctor machine available from Coles , Franklins etc.
Costs around $50 for 24hours use including the chemicals.
Works excellent. I even get the 4x4 seats looking like new with it.

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

Location: Bendigo

i redid the EB seats before AFD and did the SVO seats using a Mothers brand interior cleaner. with seats removed, first rinsed down with hose, spray on, aggitate with a soft brush. rinse of. depending on the amount of dirtiness you may have to repeat.

the cleaner is expensive but you get what you pay for
