You might still be able to get the foam from the dealer. I know for the Corrado you used to be able to. Either way, if just his fingers caused that much damage to it, the foam is already dried up and bad. It was bound to fall apart in no time if you drove it.

The foam is solid and not flaking but it's still soft and he really shoved his fingers in there good.

The a/c blow cold?
It's not how fast you go. It's how well you go fast.

I was told its operational. But from trying the A/C out I think it needs to be refilled. The compressor kicks on but it doesn't get cold.
