Ok so here is my problem...ever since I can remember my 2002 VR6 Jetta has smelled like crayons...yes, crayons. I have tried everything I could think of to get rid of the smell but nothing has worked. Its soaked into the fabric of my car (other than the leather seats).
No, I dont draw pictures in my car and lose the crayons, and no I dont advertise for crayola. I've heard pretty much all the jokes. My car is even referred to as "the black crayon". [:@]
Things I have tried:
- Windows down to air out the car on a windy day
- Washed interior including carpets (smell is soaked into carpets & cant remove it even after machine wash)
- Sprayed ozium inside car/vents
- Sprayed Fabreeze
- Used carpet powder
- Bounce sheets in vents (worked for a few)
- Car fresheners (becomes a mix of the car freshener smell and crayons combined)
Nothing seems to work.
Any ideas of what else I could do?? HELP PLEASE!! I cant take this anymore!!

bummer, ive had two stinky episodes in my other cars, and dryer sheets under the seats always worked, never thought of them in the vents,
at least it doesnt smell like mildew or something bad,
my single cab dakota smelt like gummy bears cause my gf left an opened bag on the seat under the console, and they melted in teh texas heat and ran down the back of the seat and into the carpet behind, never got it all out either, still a patch of gummy back there when i sold it. haha.

Where am i going and why am i in this handbasket?
Well i dont know how to solve it but i know what your problem is.... you see any vw newer than 98 VW packed the bodys with wax for shipping purposes and the dealerships dont bother to take it out thats why your getting the crayon smell in some high heat cases you mite even get some melted wax dripping out of of your window and door frames... watch for this try to clean while its still wet otherwise it will be there eternally and will ruin your paint.
