Welcome to Just Answer!!
Do you mean the crayon smell?

Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 1 year ago.
The crayon smell comes from the floor insulation located under the carpet that is stuck on floor itself very hard to remove you will need to the seats and carpet and scrap it off and use another for of insulation like (dynamat) to put on the floor I have seen this done once but honestly took over 40 hours to do and it still had a little bit of that smell after this was done not as bad but there was still a little bit of smell there , once again this is very hard to do because it's stuck on the floor boards and very hard to remove . I hope this helps .

It has been documented that a majority of the smell comes from the firewall installation.
Any insight on removal

Show me that documentation because Vw advised it was the floor insulation when we had the issue first back in 2000
