Stock carpeting, seats and water spots.

OK, so I have a 2010 Islander in blue and I love, love, love it. The two problems I'm currently having are:

1. The stock carpeting keeps coming up. The grommet under the seat is loose and it seems that no matter what happens, it never gets tight and keeps the carpet in place. Has anyone else had this issue? What did you do with it?

2. The Islander seats stain with water. Water alone. Nothing seems to be able to remove it.

Help?

Thanks!

TikiBob

Yeah, but I like it....lets me pull it up some when I use the shop vac.

It's supposed to pull out easy without removing too much....

My dog is my usual passenger, so it's convenient for cleaning...what grommet are you referring to??

I have all vinyl seats and have no water spots...pics???

1. Rhino line the interior
2. Get neoprene seat covers.
All problems solved.

I'll shoot some pix when I can of the water spots, they're already there and wont come up, but I've ordered some Wet Okole's anyhow. I was thinking of the rhino lining, but man, that's a lot of jack for a car that still technically under warranty.

Under the seat there's a grey grommet holding the carpet down to a bolt welded to the floorpan, that little f*@&er seems to have pulled up after using the quadratec molded mats for a little bit.

I may just try some high speed velcro until I break down and line it.

The water spots piss me off tho.

Also, hi and thanks for the response!

Oh yeah, sorry.....Welcome to the forum

My seats have spots, but it's not water...I have to wipe down the rear seat every day from the Lab gettin' muddy. Maybe ask the dealer you bought it from?? The seats shouldn't be stained, mine are from use, but a new one.....??

The way Wranglers tend to leak, you may want to pull the carpet easily

I bedlined my YJ, and it worked great...but the course texture created other issues when cleaning the inside...fyi

On our '07 the grey nut thing is threaded, I believe. We just replaced the carpet in it with Mopar rubber floor liner, but you can Raptor line your Jeep yourself for $100, and it's totally worth it.... My TJ was done last fall, and I love it. I am curious about the seats spotting. When we had our Charger many of our friends with cloth seats complained about them spotting with water. You'd think they'd have figured that out by now. My suggestion to them was the same as I'm going to tell you, maybe you're best bet is to soak the seats with water once.... Then they should be uniformly stained, so not noticeable.
