Have you thought about a steamer and gentle rubbing with micro-fiber. taking care around the seams.

Grab some of those body wipes, unscented would be my choice. Light rubbing, checking the wipe for color fast. A moist salt treatment will kill the mold, at least on the side you're cleaning, the topside may still be growing.

Clean with mild detergent, warm water, don't soak it, and keep a water/moister absorber in the interior of the car.

I decided to do a mixture of vinegar and baking soda. I first applied strait vinegar with a damp cloth on the mold spots, let it sit for 30 min. I then applied the mixture with a sponge brush, letting it sit for 15 min, working it in gently with a small soft shoe brush in a circular motion. I needed to do the heavy molded areas twice. Cleaning the mixture off with a clean damped rag with warm water. Then dried with cold air with hair dryer, just to move air around in car. Then wiped with strait vinegar and let dry. Looks great. Thank you for all the responses.
