SOURCE: 07 Honda Civic air conditioner has a musty smell.

You need to make sure that the evaporator housing drain is clear. There will be a small tube or opening that usually drains out under the engine compartment near the passenger side. Run the A/C with the car raised safely, and look underneath, you should see it dripping, if not, you'll have to find where it is supposed to be dripping and clean it out with something like a pipe cleaner. Even if you see it dripping, clean it out. Then you have to buy a can of aerosol A/C disinfectant, this should be available at any good auto parts store. Turn the A/C on high and spray the disinfectant into the intake vent of the system. The location of the intake may depend how you have the A/C set. "Fresh" pulls from the outside, usually the valence right in front of the window, "recirculation" pulls from inside the car under the center of the dash. I would do both.

1993 honda civic gives off musty smell when I turn on the a/c. The smell goes away after a few minutes but the smell comes back everytime I turn on the a/c.


the heater box will have to be removed and cleaned. over time the box accumulates organic matter (leaves, dust, dirt) and the smell is that material decomposing. there are chemicals which are designed to mask that smell, but there's nothing better than a good cleaning.

Musty smell from A/C in 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT SE


Most common cause is water sitting in the bottom of the a/c heater box. Make sure the outside drain is open. There are spray products for using on the vents.

Smell in 2009 ford edge


I have had the same smell since I owned the Edge and accidently came upon an easy cure! My mechanic put a very cheap, very thin cabin filter in, instead of the very thick allergy type that was in it. Apparently the thick filter does not allow for evaporation and mold/must grows. I prefer the kind that filters pollen, etc., but will go with this very thin one from now on. Absolutely no more weird smell and it's been two months. First time since I owned the car. It definitely was my problem. Try it!

The heater has a musty smell,I suspect i need to


It sounds to me if you are having a "musty smell" then you might have a problem with your condensation drain line for you a/c system or a small leak on your heater core. If it is plugged then water will collect in the vent system causing a musty smell from the water not draining and if there is a small leak on the heater core then coolant can collect in the vent system. I would run the a/c on a warm day and look for water draining from the vehicle around where the dash is located to check the drain line. As far as your air cabin filter most are located behind the glove box. You usually need to remove the glove box to get to the filter.

Is there an a/c filter on the 1993 Honda Accord EX ?


There is no filter for the AC or heater in the 93 Accord. Air for the AC either recirculates from the passenger compartment or is drawn in through the vents below the wipers outside the car. You might try spraying something nice-smelling into those vents to see if it is drawn into the car while the AC is running, set to outside air.
Hope this is helpful.

Musty air


Autoparts places have a spray now for that, to apparently remove mold & mildew build up in the system. It has instructions on the can I'm told. Personally, I use Lysol spray, or fabreeze & aim it in on passenger side of cowl where air is drawn into the system, (listen with heater on full, standing on passenger side, down near wiper arm pivot) with heater on medium or high, I spray it in there, and then change to vent, then defrost, then floor, to make sure I get all the duct work inside. I leave windows open so smell isn't too strong. Worst I have to do is clean inside of windshield if it leaves a film. May not be for everyone, but works for me.
