We bought pre owned Mercedes car 2 years back from Auto hangers Mumbai . The car was having very strong smell of polish . we were told that it is because they just polished the leather upholstery & the same will vanish in couple of days. We stay in Pune.
Last two years tried many shops/liquids to clear the smell literally spent few thousand rupees. Even put air purifier in car but the smell is still there. Please advise. Sharma _PUNE

Hi. The polish may have spilled over the carpet and the smell may be emanating from there. Since you have tried cleaning the leather on numerous occasions, the smell should have gone by now.

I have a 'desi' suggestion i.e.: put you car in sunlight with all doors opened for couple of days. I hope it might work.

You have to take it to a workshop remove the seats and the carpet and dry them in the sun. This is the only way.
