Help! Chocolate shake into Vent Seat.

My wife drinks these Shakology shakes. This AM she dropped her shake, pouring about a pint of it into the Ventilated Driver's Seat.

I'm thinking it will need to be disassembled in order to clean it. Can anyone point me to instructions on removing the leather from the Driver's Seat?

Or... ? I don't know what.


Edit: It's a 2015.

Ouch....sorry to hear that. I would think you would want to try and pull the seat out in case some got on the carpet under. Could always try a shop vac to suck most of it out before it dries?

Take it to a detail shop.

Pawn the wife's shoes to pay for it.

Re: Help! Chocolate shake into Vent Seat.

There's also a whole lotta electrical connections, and motors under the seat to worry about. Or, didn't it soak all the way through?

Re: Help! Chocolate shake into Vent Seat.

Most seat foams have a moisture barrier to prevent it from absorbing. Really, cleaning the surface with warm water and then Lexol cleaner and protectant is probably the way to go. And run the ventillated seats as high as possible for a while.

For the carpet, if it's puddled, you can soak a towel and it will absorb most of it. Remove the trim and possibly the seat to pull up the carpet. Use a shampooer or carpet cleaner (I like Tuff Stuff) and follow the directions.

I really would take it to a detailer though, especially since you are dealing with dairy. And that's coming from someone that had a gallon of green paint explode in the back of a Rav4 years ago... and someone that dropped a large iced tea through an open sunroof onto leather seats earlier this year. Edit: Oh and I missed one.. had a dog barf up a frog in the back of an Xterra years ago too. Yuck.

Re: Help! Chocolate shake into Vent Seat.

Thanks everybody! We're going to do the detailer first.
The shake was very thick, so very little got through to the floor. Most of the little vent holes had some shake through them, though.

Vomited frog, though, that's a new category.

Are you certain that's advisable, given the ventilated seats draw air *in* to the seat rather than blowing air out? Seems like it could simply draw the liquid further into the seat.

Unless the intake is submerged it shouldn't introduce more moisture. The concern would be with the fans themselves... hopefully they didn't get wet. It sounds like it's had a few hours to dry so far though.

Re: Help! Chocolate shake into Vent Seat.

Maybe PM the guy that started this thread to see what he did.

Spilled drink in leather perforated seat.

The more I think about it, dis-assembly is the probably the "right way".. not for the faint of heart.

Technically, the intake is the seating surface that was spilled upon.

Not sure if serious... so I'll ask. Are the Jeep seats sucking air from the surface?

In most ventilated seat applications the fans push the air toward the surface. They pull cooler air from other parts of the vehicle (under or behind the seat) or in some cases use AC refrigerant.
