Hi there,

While I'm back home after a lengthy vacation, I had the horror to discover
that I rained a lot here, Montreal looks now like Scotland, and the urQ is
full of water on the passenger side ! It was parked near a hedge, and I saw
that one branch was stuck between the door and the gasket. I Shopvac it last
night, I had to empty the bucket 3 times...

Now, should I take the time to remove the carpets to let them dry out of the
car ? If I remember well, there is no felt-like material under the carpet,
only a thick tar-like stuff that can't absorb water ? Am I right ?

Is it possible to remove the carpets without destroying them in the process
? My guess is that they will be very well stuck to the floor...
