what kind of vacum did you use? i would use an upolstry vacum to get the moisture pulled out of the seat.

I would vacum out what u can, it may take awhile to get all the water out, and if you have a garage and a fan leave the fanon it over night or if you get a sunny day just leave it out with the windows down (if you can do so)if the smell is still there try Febreze, it is amazing stuff! hope this works for ya

The smell is probably from mold...and if it's in the seat padding...it'll probably always smell[&o]

sucks[&o]

Depends how bad the mold is. At CCity they just had to pay to replace a G35's interior carpeting because of a poorly placed firewall grommet that let water into the cabin. Mold couldn't be removed without replacing carpet.

You gotta try and get it all dry without it molding too badly! bake it!
