Aircon

Hello everyone

There is a funny smell coming through the aircon. Is there anyone who has had this problem. It may well be some sort of leak.

What sort of smell?
a damp one?
does it appear as soon as A/C is used or after a long drive? if the latter it could be on recirc and eventually th air goes stale.

One general trick to clean A/C systems succesfully is to get some Fabreeze from Woolies, turn the A/C on in recirc mode and spray the fabreeze through the intake duct above the passengers feet.

Note that most Falcons recirc is stuffed but you can reach up inside the duct and flip the recirc door by hand.

catp*ss most likely!

they like to look at themselves in the glass and urinate down the plenum grille is very common we just tip soapy water(not straight down the intake)down the grille and use some freebreeze.
