Found the source, a gallon of spring water broke open in my trunk. Must have been that way for a while cause when I opened the trunk I about passed out, I wiped up most of the water. Now my towels smell like someone wiped there *** on them. Anyways I am going to pull the carpet out on the next warm day and dry it and fabreeze the crap out of it. Man that trunk smells worse than the public sewage treatment plant.

my trunks leaks raeally bad and thats made my car smell bad cuz of the insulaion(sp) was pure mold. so i took it out bought a new trunk seal still leaks so i drilled 2 holes in the lowest part of the trunk and put 2 towels behind the rear seat cuz when ever i stop all the water in the spare tire part comes flowing to the front of the car and gets under the rear seat them flows under the carpet for the whole car. so my car still stinks inside but i just buy new car smell air fresheners.

Know anyone who does steam-cleaning? That'd be the best way. Or if you don't know anyone, it'* only like $10 or so.

This may sound stupid but try putting coffee grounds in a new filter and place it under the seat.

Doesn't sound stupid at all. I've heard it works.
