Guy had a firewall leak in his Audi, and left it parked for 4 months. Take a gander at this thread made by the guy hired to clean it out.

:eek:

I don't know what's more amazing- the state of the car after 4 months, or the amazing job the detailer did saving it. Either way, I'd never drive it again. My lungs are clenching up just looking at the pics and thinking about breathing that crap in.

Enzymatic mold cleaner....who'da thunk it? The whole time I was looking at the pics I was thinking "kill it with fire!" Those molds release nasty mycotoxins that can be bad for your health. Even with a good cleaning I wouldn't want to be inside that car. :ack:

I wonder if the speakers were ruined? And the ventilation ducts!

From the before pictures, it's clear the owner is a slob. I'm surprised he even bothered to have it cleaned.

Agreed . . . .

Although I'd sell it after that, looks great now doesn't it. Just don't tell the future owner about all the mold growing in the a/c ducts, under the carpet, and everywhere. I wonder if the detailer took the seats out?

It's probably still behind the dash too. To be throughly cleaned he would have had to remove the entire interior (dash, seats, carpet, headliner...) and soak everything with the enzyme mold killer.

And who parks a car for 4 months, knowing it has a firewall leak, and doesn't go out to check on the car and make sure that shit doesn't happen?

I cant believe that could happen after only 4 months. I've never seen anything like that down here even in a tropical climate with HUGE bugs. I've had cars sit much longer with nothing more than spiderwebs and dead batteries!

dont know if it helped but he hit all the ac vents with steam.

he also provided a dehumidifier for the customer and told him to leave it running for a couple of weeks. Drew a quart of liquid the first day

Looks more like that car was flood damaged than it had some kind of "firewall leak." Something else was goimg on there.

That's the great thing about a convertible or a Seville -- the lack of an air-tight cabin means it will never get that bad. :)

Drew a quart of liquid the first dayI'm not buying the 4 months thing either. 4 years with it sitting outside with the sunroof open? Yeah but not this. Eons ago I detailed cars and I never saw anything like this. I would not have taken anything less than $1k to do this. Like someone else mentioned, the mold is in the dash and I guarantee the "smell" will still linger on. :yup:

That mold thing is common in the boating world and almost always requires a complete tearout and replacement of all toxic surfaces. That car is probably 10 times as toxic as Formaldehyde.
