Thanks, tomcat. I've had the smell in every car I've owned. Your step by step is invaluable. I'll be ready when it gets bad.
I think I may have this issue on my 2003 Protege5. I am struggling to remove this trim to get access to the drain. I loosened the screw, it is very loose on the left side but seems stuck in the top right corner. Any idea why?
