Default help for removing interior/carpet

going to tackle installing sounddeadener this weekend in my 2011. any tips or interior breakdowns? like removing kickpannels, door sils, rear seats. going to be removing, everything to get under the carpet. i did the trunk a few weeks ago and i put some plastic clips back in the wrong places and now i need to go figure the one out too.

thanks in advance. my search didn't turn out anything, though i swear i saw something before.

Good question. I don't have any experience with the 2011 yet. Make sure that you're careful when you remove any stubborn clips as they always seem to break to easily is the only thing I can think of.

You may want to ask this in the interior/exterior section as well. The guys who have newer cars and have stripped the interior for racing might be able to answer this one for you.

thanks! i posted on one of bings diymobileaudio forums and he responded, just FYI for anyone:

"the rear seat has a central latch that just pop, and two side latches where you need to reach in and pull on a tab...no hidden screws, not sure on the rear seat back as i didnt have to remove it. the panels are all pretty straightforward but as new subarus all have pretty annoying door sill trim pieces, i use a spreader type of panel tool to release them. "

If anyone is wondering i got everything out today.

this is what i did/noticed
1. remove center console. i used this guide: http://www.iwsti.com/forums/how-inst...ml#post1724759
2. rear seats, pull the center up. the sides you need to feel for the plugs and pull a little loop towards the dash to free the seat. one on each side.
3. front and rear door sills. the plastic is soft and the clips at the very ends are a bit hard to pull out. be sure to pull straight up, i got a small screw driver to pop the clip free when it was stubborn.
4. removing kick panels, remove plastic pin in the back. pull kick panel straight towards the center of the car, 2 plastic clips.
5. remove front seats
6. remove carpet

I was able to fit quite a bit of deadening underneath the carpet and have it still fit well. layer of a mix of leftover edead and raamat. layer to ensolite in certain places. layer of mass loaded vinyl on the majority of the floor.

road noise has gone down a lot. exhaust tone is still there, but quieter. trunk was done weeks ago. next are the doors.

How did you remove the carpet by the door. It is stapled to a long white plastic piece that runs length of the door.

I find stripping an interior easier than changing an exhaust.. Unless its German or a 240sx
Buy a clip popping tool. You'll use it more than you think.
