I just got an '85 380SE. Unfortunately the the drains near the corners of the front windshield were clogged with pine needles, leaves, and dirt. The result--a flooded rear footwell (is this the right term?). I got the carpeting pretty dry but I can't imagine there isn't some residual moisture in between the carpet itself and the foam rubber padding. I did pull the front carpet to air it out and diagnose the leak and it is now dry.
Is it worth to pull the whole rear carpeting up? Wouldn't I have to--at least--remove the front seats?
