    It's probably under the console so it'll be hard.. You'll have to take the tread plate off and seat out to pull it up and then see where your leak is coming from..

    Come on dani! The seats in our cars have got to be some of the easiest to remove. You'll have both out in 15 mins! Just a shame the weigh half a tonne

    seriously Dani?

    I could remove the front seat in the time I've wasted reading this. It's 2 bolts dude. that's it!

    Carpet is one whole unit, front - rear, so can't be removed in sections, and can't be removed with the seats in.

    It also goes under ALL the trim panels obviously.

    removing the seat is the smallest of all the jobs required to get the carpet up I'm afraid.
