One of the only complaints I have is that the space between the console and the seats is so tight that if you drop something in between them its there for good....I can figure out a trick..but french fries and pens are having a good time! Any suggestions?:32:

yup...dropped my first french fry the other night on the way home with take out. It was one of those spicy curly fries too. Could have been a real disaster, if a fried clam dropped down there, could pose a liitle odor problem in a day or two!
Tommorrow I will see if I can work it out with a chopstick or a paint stick.

Hehe I'm glad someone liked my witty comment. Anywho what I do is move the seat all the way foward, then using my shoe horn, those long ones, I push the stuff thats stuck, if it;s cose to the rear of the car, I use the back scratchin portion of the show horn to pull it.

Some of vacuum cleaners (either canister or upright) have one of those attachments with a long, narrow 'snout' on them that easily fits between the console and the front seats. Works for me every time, although not too forgiving when vacuuming up loose change there.

I use a paint stick to get all the stuff out, keep one in my glove box at all times.

Would you like a Coke with that?

It took over 7000 miles to drop the first thing between the seat. Since I didn't have any appropriate tool to retrieve the french fry, it's still in there. Do you think it will still be crunchy tonight?

Sure not!

But if you keep all the "droppings", after lets say, 5 years you pretty much have a historical data of what have you been doing with your MDX. Sort of like fossil remains of what you do. So go ahead let it pile up.:)

Vacuum

One of the biggest challenge with getting particles and objects that fall between the driver and front passenger seats is to figure out a way to get them out easily...

Things that fall between those crevices are, food particles like chips, crackers, hair, dust particles, pens. pencils...Where is what I do to get them out.

I take the paper tubes from the paper rolls that I purchase from the groceries store. Brand name like (Braun, etc etc) take masking tape and tape two together. End to end. then take one end and mask tape it to a vacuum cleaner with a tube/nozzle. Then on the other end take a scissor and cut it angle wise at 30 degrees...then Either from the top between the arm rest in the and the seats I squeeze the paper tub...push it all the way down and vacuum or from the rear passenger seat...I laid the tube horizontally and stick it between the crevice and vacuum.... AM TELLING YA...THIS WORKS GREAT!!! it vacuums ALL dirt, debris, pens, pencils, coins...HAir...

Hmmm.... for the small things, has anyone tried Silly Putty. If you roll it up and place it in-between the seat, it ought to mold to the floor. Next you just pull it up, instant vacuum. Just a theory.

Gap Between the seats solution

I went out and bought some two inch foam insulation that you
use to keep pipes from freezing in the winter. The foam insulation
is dark dark grey and is very pliable and easy to insert between the seats and will not cause any problems with the movement of the seats yet it keeps junk from accumulating between the seat and floor. Cost was about $2.53 :25:

That's a good idea. Never thought about that. I always lose sweat taking out nickels and dimes on that spot.

I got a bag of styrofoam peanuts and dumped them in the crack between the seat and the console. I then got a couple tubes of silicon based caulking compound and filled in the remainder of the space.

Viola! Nothing gets down there now! This silicon flexes, but this does restrict the seat motion somewhat.
