carpet

Anyone know an easy way to remove the front section of carpet from an E46 saloon? The rear section is incredibly easy to remove but this front section is tucked under the heater blower motor and its damn tight under it.

Someone please help out. thanks all

you have 2 options

1) remove heater box

2) cut the carpet around the heater box making sure to cut it where the center console will cover it and then when u reinstall it you can poke holes and ziptie the carpet back to itself. If your replacing the carpet you would just cut the new carpet in the same place

Good luck

Thanks DT, option 2 definately seems to be the only viable route as removing the heater box is a dash out job along with de-gassing the AC system
