Trouble getting old carpet foam out

We are upgrading carpet/vinyl and the metal under both front seats has the carpet foam glued down. Has anyone used a product to help loosen it for easier removal?

thanks! Taking lots of pics of old ugly interior & will post a thread when done!

Harbor freight item #94036.
A scraper with blade.
$7 plus shipping.
A super handy tool to have in your box.

thank you! We have something similar...hubby going to get new blades, but really wanted to know if anyone has used rubbing alcohol or anything else to help loosen the glue first.

Try using a heat gun to soften the glue then use the scraper, it is the best way I know to remove glued carper and not ruin the particle board underneath it.

Thanks! Will try heat...and this is actually up front by the engine (gas) so it's a metal sheet under the foam not plywood.

back at it!

Just be really careful! That stuff can be super flammable.
