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.

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.
