E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
I took my car for a wash today. And apperantly the seal just below the window on which the trunk lid sits on is loose. So when i opened up my trunk to grab some stuff out of it everything was soaked. Like everything exept a hat i had in a box was completely soaked. The carpet even had some foam from the car wash on it.
Now i took it out and set it to dry. But should i have dried it with like a blow dryer or something? or is it gonna be fine if i just let it air dry?
^^^Yes, vacuum up as much moisture as you can and let it air dry the rest of the way. If you leave it soaked, residue from underneath the carpet may surface, leaving a wet spot. Or better yet, you may as well clean the whole thing with carpet cleaner.
Like all the guys previously said get all the "removables" out and dry -shop vac, air dry whatever. Get ALL the moisture out of trunk especially behind wheel wells (those lower wells) Don't let moisteure sit there and don't forget spare tire well. Even spread "oil dry" around and vac that out to prevent rust from taking hold and mold forming.
