Thanks all for suggestions

Ive scrubbed the area with hot water and white wine vinegar mixture. Thrown away the boot carpet as that seems the worse item. Sprayed some oust and covered the remaining carpets with bicarbonate of soda. Going to get som zoflora stuff tomorrow and wash all the carpets and hopefully tha should do it.

put a tin or bag full of barbeque charcoal in there the charcoal will absorb it. Trust me it works...

You could also have a go and spray everything with Febreeze, including carpets and upholstery and all the exposed plastic and ceiling inner, after all these efforts, you will end up with a very clean car. Try leaving the windows open for a day - if safe to do so of course, and it's not raining.

I once bought a car that had belonged to a dog owner. I don't remember fully ever getting rid of the lingering smell.

Good luck,

David

Andy's idea works try fresh orange peel it acts like an air freshener but don't leave it any more than a couple of days without changing it

I had a similar problem with a Freelander I bought which had a permanent smell of damp dog - especially in hot weather.

I got rid of it by steam cleaning all the fabrics with a handheld steam cleaner and then putting buckets of charcoal in it for a few days which absorbed the remaining odour to a large extent.

My pet lab spend more time wet than dry. She is always in the back of the car I keep a box full of charcoal there.. No smells......It really does work masking bad smells only works for a while you need to remove the smells....

People who clean carpets professionally have stuff similar to fabreeze but stronger. I left keepnets in a car for three days and it stank so bad it would make you sick. My mate sprayed the interior and left the windows down for a while then sprayed it again once it was dry. Smell gone.

Hydrogen peroxide solution 3 percent, bicarb of soda and fairy in 2pts, 100 grams and table spoon respectively, if you soak affected materials while mixture is foaming, will get rid of any smell.
