Clean *everything*. Steam the carpets. If you have leather, use leather cleaner on the leather. Get some A/C condensor cleaner. (I can point you in the right direction if you are in the USA). Clean the trunk if you have one. Get into every crack and crevice you can find. The seatbelts, the underdash, everything. Use lots of rinse water where it's sensible. Wait a week. Do it all again. Wait a week. Do it all again. Get a product called Ozium. Spray it every few days, close the windows, stay out of the car for a half hour. No, I'm not joking. After that, it will get better. You can also try to find a detailing shop that has a ozone machine. These are said to do a good job when left in the car for an hour or more. Accept no substitutes from the detailing folks as they will sell you whatever they have. You need ozone to get it done. Bob
