I bought a pack of those tree shaped air fresheners for my car a while back. I can't be doing with things hanging off the rear view mirror (Unless it's furry dice of course[:D]) and it kept falling off the rear grab handle so I put it in the centre console leaning against the rear passenger ashtray.

Just went to replace it and noticed it's made the paint/laquer/finish (whatever you want to call it) blister and peel away from the ashtray cover where it's been in contact[:(!]!!!

Maybe that's why they're designed to hang[:I].

Cheers, Jim

Happened to me on my steering column. Had a charity air freshner I got from MacDonalds and hung it from my indicator stalk where it blistered and peeled the rubbery finish away. Thats what I get for being charitable!

aaaaahhhh!

I had hung my coconut scented wooden air freshener from the indicator stork and noticed the same thing. I thought it must be the knocking from the wood against the plastic when I indicated etc..

Now I know. b'stards.

Don't bother with the 'hang it up' or 'put it on the vent' type airfreshners as I have found they don't last that long and some of them make your car smell like a toilet!

Get some of the scented granules that the trade use, and then put them in the ashtray (front/rear) and they make the car smell lovely. Can get them in Lemon/camomile, vanilla, and now CK1 style or Chanell #5 (if you so wish).

Can get a price for people if required.
