Automotive carpet endures lots of wear and tear: pets, children, high foot traffic and home improvement projects can cause a laundry list of spills. Numerous companies sell carpeting by the yard if you are interested in fashioning your own replacement. Not only will this save you money, but you also can choose a different color to change the look of the interior. In fact, a variety of automobile carpet retailers permit you to take carpet samples to help you see what the end result of your carpeting installation will look like.
Vacuum your old carpeting to minimize the amount of dust stirred up when it is removed. Unroll the new carpeting to allow the carpet fibers to flatten while you disassemble the car.
Cut through the old carpeting to the new carpeting with an utility knife. Make incisions into the carpeting that line up with holes for the seat belts, bolts and seats.
