2002 SC2
Default 2002 Saturn SC2 carpet

Hello All.
Can anyone give me a detailed procedure in removing the carpet from a 2002 SC2? Are there any special tools required to remove the plastic trim pieces? Are there any pitfalls or procedural risks involved? Thanks for all of your advice.

Remove seats, the plastic trim touching the carpet.... just be gentle when they pull off... I normally just do it with a small screwdriver... harbor freight does sell the plastic tools to remove them... its e10 on the front seats btw...

The coupe seatbelts are held on at the bottom by a metal arm. The arm is held onto the frame (through the carpet) by a T50 bolt, so you will need a T50 bit for your ratchet.

The T50 bolt is installed at the factory with the equivalent of serious-grad Loctite. I'd heat it a bit carefully, first, before attempting removal

A T45 will appear to fit but all it will do is strip out the middle. Ask me how I know this

Other than that, the E10 that Saturninin mentioned, plus a phillips screwdriver to remove the center console.

Once you remove the front seats, the door threshold trim (all four doors), and the center console, taking the carpet out is pretty straightforward...This is not as difficult as it may seem at first glance. By the way, I would be very grateful if you would share the companies that are engaged in water damage restoration in Canberra. We were advised by these guys splendorflooddamagerestoration.com.au but I would like to know if you have used their services and were satisfied. I never would have thought that it would be so difficult to find such specialists...

1997 SW2
Default Re: 2002 Saturn SC2 carpet

When removing the seatbelt units don't fall for what I did. I had one out and wondered why it seemed to be jammed so I started taking it apart despite the idiot sticker warning me not to. The spring flew out with near lethal force and I had to get a replacement unit for no good reason other than my ignorance. Just leave them alone until you reinstall them. They have a built in gravity switch that enables the retractors to only work when ordinarily upright and in their normal orientation. (Designed to hold you in place after an accident when the car is anything but upright.)

@ KiserWatch-

Dunno any shops by Canberra.

Around here {Long Island, New York} IF a car chassis is exposed to Salt Water, it is then considered Junk -- the salt cannot be removed.

If wet by "fresh" water (minimal dissolved salts), then it can be flushed & dried.

Sometimes marine (boat) engines sink. Even if submerged in salt water,
those engines can often be rescued (by flushing out the innards with
FRESH water, then drain/fill crankcase with oil, circulate; drain/fill run
to heat/dry....
