I ripped out the carpet last night, and the foam under it, both were soaking and stinking.

If you google Car trimmers and upholsterers, or car carpets etc. you will probably find someone local who can make them up for you. Are the old ones beyond redemption? They can be cleaned, dried and there are a number of products on the market to get rid of the smell.

They have been sitting two months, the smell is horrid. I had a fiat panda a few years back had a similar issue (back window was smashed and it sat for 6 months) and tried all sorts of chemicals to get rid of the smell none worked. In the end taking out the carpet and seats, throwing them im the skip and replacing all was the only thing that worked.

But i think i might have found a breaker in craigavon who has a tidy looking 5dr yaris hopefully its in good nick, ill let you know tommorow.

Thanks for your reply

Be careful. My 2005 Yaris had same issue & found a body seam was the culprit under wheel arch - not the windscreen. Mine is French made & Mr T fixed as a "Goodwill" gesture even though it was covered under anti-perforation warranty.

May be the same issue?

thats interesting to know, the carpets are still out, the scrappy had the yaris unfortunatley it had been sitting without doors and had all manner of biodiversity growing on it, the search continues.

But with the carpets out i can look at this wheelarch issue, is this the front or rear one? Is there a thread on the issue?

I will also check the pollen filter sometimes these and the scuttle can fill with leaves and when they dont drain they leak water into the cabin.

I found wheel arch leak ( LH Front ) by stripping out tread plate & kick panel, peeling carpet away & asking someone to run hose around this area.

I started in engine bay & slowly worked UP ( do not start at top and work down ). Eventually found it dribbling in. It was quite sodden after 6 years of leaking.
