Whenever I use the air conditioner unit there is a mildew smell for the first five to ten minutes of use. The smell dissipates after that. The local car dealerships don't know of any specific problems but have been spraying to alleviate the smell. The spray wears off very quickly usually within thirty minutes. What do you think is causing this and how can I get it fixed?
We have been looking at a new product that is supposed to remedy your problem. However, we cannot recommend it yet. In the meantime, you can help the situation by turning off your air-conditioner but leaving the fan on for about two minutes before you turn the car off. This will dry out the moisture in the evaporator that causes the smell
