Carpet Removal

Folks:

After this last tropical storm and my daughter leaving the door cracked....I've finally been forced to pull the carpet.

2Qs:

1- Can I pull the carpet without pulling the dash??
(not sure if the convertible is that different from the coupe in that regard)

2-Any sources for good replacement carpet & insulation???
(Hot here in SC!!)

TIA!

1. You can but it will be tough since the carpet continues underneath the heater core. If you do it that way, just cut carefully with an exacto knife around the base of the dashboard. I would definitely remove the center armrest/console though.

2. I got mine from a local Craigslist ad. The carpet should come with insulation on the back of it already.

You don't need to pull anything else, just trim up as far as you can once you pull the dash. You'll see a crease where the dash hits the carpet, trim above that and you'll be fine.
