Okay guys here I am with another problem, of my Khyber. Though it's not related to engine or transmission but it is related to Khyber. (A)
I decided to clean the interior by removing each and every bit, but got stuck.
A few years back we had a gear oil spill in my car, there was this bottle placed on the back floor which was not capped properly and it fell. The carpet, insulation and even the floor was drenched in gear oil.
I removed it and got it cleaned at a service station. The carpet got clean but I was not satisfied with the insulation.
Now when I opened it, I decided to clean it thoroughly, so I cleaned the carpets with a detergent, tried using detergent along with hot water on one portion of the insulation, it got better but on corners it still smells like gear oil.
Now it was the floor turn and I found the insulation attached with the floor (namda) to be a bit soggy and sticky. If you press your finger on it, you'd leave a finger print and it smelled like gear oil aswell. -.-
So I used kerosine oil on it and a hard brush. Within minutes the kerosine oil turned into brown and then into black and spread through out the car floor. I kept on using the brush but the more I rubbed, the blacker it would get, even adding more kerosine oil wasen't helpfull.
I left it as it is and the next day it was in a worse state. It felt as if the namda had started to dissolve due to the kerosine oil and had become so soft that it felt like grease.
I used a soft cloth to dry out the kerosine oil and then used a hair dryer for about 30 minutes on the floor to dry it.
It has become alot better but now it is sticking even more, has turned black.
What is the best solution which removes the gear oil throughly without damaging the namda?
I'm attaching the pictures.
P.s: It looks much much better in the pictures but trust me the car is a mess right now.
