Question can someone help me out with this smell!!

Ok I have a 99 F250 Lariat leather Ex cab.
My wife spilled a Latte on the center counsole. It is the kind that flips up to make room for the center seat. Anyway this was spilled in December and smells awfull. I have cleaned all the leather, cleaned the inside and used Lysole frebreez and other cleaners inside it to no avail. I think maybe the drink went inbetween the leather and cushion. Can anyone tell me how to take the damn thing apart or how to get rid of the smell??? i will post this in a couple of places since I do not know where to post it.

Thanks
Marty

Not without removing/cutting the upholstery maybe. If you haven't already, and can force a rag down in there, try "Quick 'n Brite" cleaner. It disappeared the coffee-sugar-cream spilled in my front seat fabric upholstery.

Check the carpet under the seat. 9 times out of 10 that is where the stuff that did not get cleans is hiding. Is that seat a 40-20-40 or 40-60 split? If it is on the carpet then every time you run the truck it will get hot and smell worse, I bet with running the heater this last winter was brutal. Good luck.

You got that right bud ...We used to play jokes on each other by putting them little creamers underneath the seats with slits...It would get up tp 100 in the vehicle and start stinking like 'crap'. If they spilt, it was heck to get rid of the smell....Damn, we were mean!.

If the smell was real bad, you had to yank the seats and wash the carpet or upholstry.

You can only smell it when you open the consoul. It is a 40 20 40
