|That's terrible. BV?|
That was brought up in 2006 here. Change the Filter every 10 K. They are notorious for not smelling well.
For that matter a Cat (or something else) could have crawled in, and perhaps left a present. The Dealer has a Service for it, but
I heard it does not work. They sell stuff in the store too, but not really advised!
|My wife was in the car today, and complained about a strange odor coming from the A/C vents.|
|Hey man, that's what usually happens if you don't turn A/C off a minute before arriving at your destination. Without evaporating the condensation on the evaporator quickly, it starts getting moldy (this develops much quicker as weather turns colder, since it takes longer for condensation to evaporate), and that's what smells. It has nothing to do with the A/C filter, so no need to change it earlier than normal. Try that method, and the foul odor eventually goes away. And yes, this happens to ALL cars, although some develop it sooner, depending on evaporator location/orientation/design. Good luck.|
