    Under Carpet Sound Deadening Suggestions......

    Hello Gents. Hope everyones well. Havnt been around here for a few months due to work and a newborn......

    My rear washer jet pipe popped off when the washer stalk was stuck on permanent send. To cut a long story short it emptied the entire FULL resevoir into the passenger side of my interior. Having removed All the trim, seats and taken out the carpet it is absolutely gopping!! It stinks (even though I have tried it out in my boiler room which took almost a week by itself!). The entire passenger side when the carpet is removed was under a thin film of water. Everything is now dry and I took the opportunity to sort out the messy wiring and a few other odds and sods. I could really do with a replacement carpet from Audi but I'm a bit wary as I suspect they will prob be $$$$$!!!! I'm now thinking about laying black sub carpet thats used to wrap sub enclosures. I reckon if done carefully it could work out alright. I've been looking into dynamatt to replace the sponge sound deadening attached to the audi carpet but its stupidly expensive (prob be cheaper to buy a new oe carpet!). Does anyone know of a good alternative....?? Cheers gents.

    I dunno how flexible it is once its out, but if you wanted to get the smell out, you could perhaps put it in the washing machine/tumble dryer? Might need a big laundrette sized one mind!

    The other option would be to get another carpet from a breakers?

    some people have used the kind of heavy roofing underlay. it is self adhesive and similar consistancy to dynamat, just a **** load cheaper!!

    I have a hot water jet wash and it does the job on all sorts, trainers, carpets, dogs, kids, paving slabs....

    Yhanks for the replies gentlemen! The roofing underlay sounds like a top idea. Ideally Dynamat would be the correct choice but I'm haemorrageing money on baby stuff at the mo so dont have the luxury of choice! I have both jetwashed and put previous cars carpets in the wash before and for some reason they always seemed to dry put of shape and didnt fit properly ever again. Going to phone Audi and see how much a new carpet would be. Does anyone know if they did a jet black carpet as mines a very dark grey.

    I was looking into this a couple of year ago, and the cost was around 500.
