I have smelly odor in my car when I have open air circulation. Is there any solution to solve my problem. I have checked the cabin filter. It doesnt smell.

Hi there,

This is mold and mildew growing inn the vents, firstly you need to ensure that the A/C drains are clear and running free, then there is a commercial disinfectant that you can used designed for the A/C system to combat this problem, check your local parts store, they should carry it.

Or get some Listerine ® and spray a generous amount in each intake. It kills the mildew and the funky smell. Use the old school yellow stuff, the kind without any sugar in it.

Listerine? Good idea Doc. Cheaper and just as good.
