Default getting rid of a nasty moldy funk

well to make a long story short, it rained here tuesday night, and the car had developed a leak, so my passenger floorboard was absolutely soaked...I didnt discover this until late last night, and just got it completely dry today.

So now the car I used to get compliments on for still smelling like new, smells like a big moldy watery thing. Any special advice for getting it cleaned up and getting the smell out?

I found the leak and fixed it so thats not an issue, the issue here is the funk left behind.

get a good foam carpet cleaner..Vacuum the hell out of it first, then rub in the carpet cleaner..
Use a carpet shampooer to REALLY work the stuff in and get it out, let it dry..Vacuum again..then febreeze!
Works like a hot damn!
