hey, does anyone know how to remove the carpet on the front right passenger side? I spilled 2 cups of coffee and I'm afraid there might be molds forming already. I had molds growing under my rear seats, probably because of the excess leather cleaner...anyways, can anyone help please?

quit postin' and get out there and dooo it
it isn't hard at all to remove the seats and console. the front seats, IIRC have 2 bolts each at front and rear, and my experience with removing my rears won't help since you most likely have a hatch. the console is CAKE to take apart, the **** is all self-explanatory. there is a plastic screw cover in the console area... god, how do i explain... where the armrest piece meets the shifter bezel piece... pop that out and there are 2 screws there, then you can see screws on the sides all the way back. easy peasy 1-2-threezy

This can be VERY time consuming if you're replacing the carpet with non-OEM carpet. I replaced mine on the hottest day of the summer and it took hours. With the non-OEM carpet nothing is cut so it takes awhile for it to be fit perfectly. Originally I thought it would be cake just use the OEM carpet as a template---yeh that doesn't work because the carpet is exactly the same (close but not perfect). Plus it being so damn hot it didn't help at all but the results were doable. I read Z's article when he did his carpet install and I ran into ALL of the same problems. The fitment is less than perfect to say the least lol.

You might run into some trouble with the part behind the center console near the fire wall. That's where I had trouble with. I got lazy and just used a razor to cut it since it's not seen anyways.

i'ma do this too pretty soon -- my gray carpet is nasty from the previous owner. Not really wanting to use Rit Dye.. seems too messy and time consuming, and some of the pictures I've seen done turn out purpleish black. I'm definitely gonna pressure wash it to get out whatever dirt I can first.
I'm still researching on the fabric sprays.. Here are some vital links.. maybe you or anyone else can help with the decision. There isn't much info on TI about fabric spray.
TI Thread
The Simply Spray Upholstery Fabric Spray looks pretty promising.. Check out these links for it:
Demo

2nd Link
The above link is $14.99 for an 8 oz. can.. That's a lil pricey, since I'm not even sure how well it works.. and if it does, not sure how well the carpet will eat it up. The site says to see how our carpet reacts to water, and it will be the same for the spray.. so I'll have to do that.
I also found this product on eBay for $55 shipped for 6 8oz. cans, so approximately $9 a can.
btw, change the topic subject, so that people can search for this thread on both removing and spray painting carpet.
