anyone master this?

canister wet/dry vac and a crevice attachment works for me.

I just use the thin attachment on my vacuum and it works fine.. its only about 1/3 inch wide so it fits everywhere I've tried to vacuum.

Along with moving the seats front to back to get to the hard to reach areas.

God I hate to do that though! With the 8-way power mneumatic seat there are just so many combinations that by the time I get my seat in that exact perfect spot, I can't stand to move it. I have to spend another 15 minutes trying to get the thing back into place again. I don't use valet parking any more because I almost breathed fire onto a parking attendant who moved my seat (honestly, you're driving it 15 feet, leave the @#%& controls alone!!).


But, I've always been of the opinion that if I can't reach it with the small vacuum attachment, then I can't see it very easily either, so I don't mind if its dusty. ;)

LOL, parking guy at a restaraunt I went to recently couldnt reach the pedals in my car... I told him dont move the seat, Ill just park it myself and walk back. I dont ever move my seats, I get them set the way I like and how it feels good for shifting MTX. If they get moved I have to go through that process again.

Umm I guess I'm just too anal about cleaning and defenitely move the seats to get at every inch with the crevasse tool. But I also put a mark with dab of white paint on the inside edge of the track to line my seat back to teh right spot. Manual controls no power seats..

Oh and I never valet unless ABSOLUTELY necessary, not that I'm cheap just rather do it myself..

im glad i have long legs and move my seat all the way back. so no matter what i know where it goes.

i slide the seat all the way up, use the big attachment to get a large area and then the crevice tool for small areas.

Yes! If I go to Mazda I have to make a note on the work order "don't move my seat!" Just an FYI, I know some people are averse to Jiffy Lube... but they never move my seat, and they always vacuum.

My note is for them to not wash the car, as I have the seat all the way back too.

However, I am also one with moving the seat forward and back and using a crevice tool. My Kirby has a little brush that attaches to the tip of the crevice tool to agitate the carpet fibers for better cleaning.
