the smell is coming from the undercarriage of your car. Take it to carwash that has the thing that sprays under to remove residue but the smell will probably take a week or so to wear off

Hose it down, first of all.  As bad as it sounds, get any remaining skunk parts off of the outside of the car.

Leave the windows down, and let it air out.  Spray down everything with febreeze and just let it sit.

That's about all I can think of.

A simple homemade solution can be used:

Two quarts of 3% hydrogen peroxide, one-half cup of baking soda, and 3 teaspoons of dishwashing liquid. You will also need a bucket and a clean rag or a soft-bristled scrub brush.

Once the ingredients are combined, apply it liberally to any areas beneath the car including the tires, rims, and the undercarriage. Let your nose guide you. Allow the homemade solution to work for several minutes, and rinse it away with clear water.

The smell of skunk on the outside of a car quite often makes its way to the inside of a car.

To get rid of the lingering smell of skunk inside of a car, place a shallow bowl of fresh ground coffee on the floor.

Allow it to absorb odors for at least twenty-four hours before removing.

The smell of coffee will be far better than the smell of skunk, and both odors will finally dissipate and leave behind a clean fresh scent.
