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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Look for the cabin air filther in my 2000 gmc jimmy


I'm 99% sure it doesn't have a cabin air filter. I've serviced many Jimmys and similar GM trucks of the same era and never replaced a cabin air filter or seen a reference of one in manuals. What kind of smell are you experiencing? Is it a musty moldy smell or a horrid animal smell?

IS THERE A CABIN FILTER ON MY 2006 CHEVROLET SILVERADO ?IS THIS WHY WHEN MY TRUCK IS CLOSED UP IT SMELLS LIKE MOLD OR MUSTT.AND WHEN I TURN ON MY HEAT AND DEFROST?


There are none on the 2006. There might be some moisture that entered the carpet in the vehicle at some time or another and caused a moldy or musty smell. There are several different air fresheners that can be added to the interior under the seat and in the carpets to help make is smell better.

Musty smell


First thing I would do is rig a vacuum cleaner hose that will go deep into the defrost vents... cut the defrost on HIGH - WIDE OPEN - FAN ON HIGH!! -- then stick the hose down and dig around.. you will find you have collected a LOT of farm "dust" (down)(the way dust falls) in the defrost vents.. and the A/C vents are not (down) and nothing falls (down into) the vents...
