Made a start on the interior this afternoon, and started by removing the seats to make life a little for myself.



Which left me with this





I gave this a quick hoover, mainly so I could see how bad it was.







After that I started on the seats, blasted the worst bits with some G101



Followed by a coat of brisk and a wet vac





Drying in the sun



Then made a start in here, but due to time I just got the back of the seats cleaned and the carpet underneath the rear bench



Which meant I could put this bit back together



Still got to clean the carpet which I’m not looking forward to, but it’s definitely looking and smelling much better than it did.
This is what came out of the seats and it smells like wet dog, which might explain why it was such a mess.

Having a quick Google I think the codes and colours are listed on a couple of Corsa forums. I think the code itself for your car might be on the VIN plate if you are able to check that.

Doing a splendid job on a nice little first car.
To remove smell is always worst, try not to use a airfreshner is any form until you are sure the smell is gone.
Many car smell "fresh" when you get into them, but being a little while in them and a dirty underlying smell whiff up.
Good luck!
