AC / Heater Smell

Another thing Im trying to fix is The AC / Heater. When I turn the AC or Heater on it works fine, except when Im behind another car. When Im at a light and behind another car I get a horrid smell (much worse than exhaust) into the cabin. Im trying to figure out what this is. The only problem is I dont know where the air come from for The AC system. I believe the filter is behind the glove compartment (going to check that). Any ideas what this could be? Also where does the air come from? Air Intake Manifold (I thought this is only for the engine)?

Re: AC / Heater Smell

Cabin air filter is located under the plastic cowl shown in photo.

The air for AC/Heat is fresh outside air brought in through the cabin air filter, or recirculated inside air if you have system on Max AC.

Re: AC / Heater Smell

Its pretty easy to remove. The cowl is two pieces and you'll only have to remove the passenger side half.
