I know I have asked about a musty A/C smell before.

Ive used 2 a/c bombs and one dealer clean to try and cure it. Ive replaced the pollen filter too...

Now A/C on with/or without recirc there is NO SMELL..THIS PART IS FINE..

Only when I use the BLOWER ON ITS OWN cool say..do I still get this weird earthy musty smell, like old house kinda smell. Im still at a loss what else could be causing this ?[:(]

Any one got any other ideas ?

Anyone else got this problem ?

Cheers mate lets hope so..Before I changed the pollen filter the compartment was filled with leaves and twigs etc....Perhaps they are also further down like you say.....

Maybe somethings died in my A/C ?!![:D][:D][:D]

I reckon i've still got a really stinky evaporator...Now the question is does anyone know how to get to or near it to give it a real blast of some mould/cleaner or something?? Im loathed to go the stealers for 70 squid but I guess if it does the job then maybe i'll have to..

Anyone found a how to de-stink an evaporator?? Any info would be gratefully appreciated...Thanks guys

yes, ive tried an a/c bomb. Two in fact...Smells ok for a couple of days then back to normal..Stinking car...

Hi

the smell your on about is a build up of bacteria within the aircon

system.

In our workshop we use a product made by werth, it comes in a spray can with a long nozzle and it is sprayed through the pollen filter vent, takes about 25mins and cures it every time!

I will find the exact product name and number and post it on here tomorrow.

i would imagine you could buy a similar product from a main dealer or motor factors?

Hope this has been some help!

Found some more information on the web. It is Wurth Air Conditioning & Heating System Treatment. There is like a long hose thingy to get right into the evaporator..

Looks like the biznis

Anyone know any retailers in the UK ??!! [?]

Thanks
