    Default Stinking smell

    Hi,
    I recently went for an outing. Now I have Stinking smell in car. I have tried leaving the car in sun with Windows down, and sprayed vanilla spray to finish Stinking smell. It's been three to four days and smell has not gone.

    Any thoughts ideas I may be missing.

    Get it service thoroughly by disassembling the seats , and washing the inside . You can go to any service station for this , they will charge 1500-2000 . Good luck

    i heard of the coal trick

    put some freshly arrived dry coal in the sport where the odor originates & couple of other places

    for 3-4 days

    should be very effective

    i myself tried it once

    wassalaam

    It's been three or four days, and I have kept the coal in car. And it is doing something. Although the smell hasn't finished off yet. But slowly and steadily it is getting blur by day.
