SOURCE: SMELL IN SIDE THE CAR FROM AC
There's no cabin air filter on your vehicle. What happens is dust, lint or so-on gets trapped in the evaporator core for the a/c and starts to stink over time. Ask your local parts store for a de-oderizor spray for your a/c.

mould in evaporator case?
some vehicles have a pollen filter(air conditioning air intake filter)not sure if your vehicle has but check if it has, may need replacing.
check plenum chamber(area under front windscreen)for leaves and debris.
then can try and spray mould killing pressure can(glen 20)air freshner in through intake air places under front windscreen with windows down air cond on full fan speed on fresh air while engine running or not depending on how long and how bad smell is.
may also pay to check for blocked air cond. drain tube, is it dripping water when running?
service centres or hire places have also got fragrance and mould killing machines you can use inside vehicle under similar conditions as above(ozoneator)

You most likely have leaves or a field mouse nest in the ducting and they are smoking when they get on the AC blower motor speed control resistor it is very hot. You can start a fire so have the blower motor removed and the leaves and or mouse nests cleaned out.
