OK Good^

Yes, just remove certain things holding the carpet down like the black plastic door sill cover at teh bottom of the door, and the kickpanel with the speaker in it.

To remove the kickpanel, find a right sized allen wrench or use a small flathead jewelers screwdriver and turn the fasteners 90 degrees.

When you are able to pull the carpet up slightly it will want to go back down into its place. Jam the stick in between the carpet and the metal floor to allow air circulation. If you happen to find a pool of water, look for some metal plugs in the floorpan of the car right underneath the carpet. Pry those out to allow for drainage. When its dried-out, reseal the metal plugs into the floorpan with some silicone caulking.

Do the same for the rears if they are wet.
