Question about 2004 Mazda MPV

1 Answer

Does 2004 Mazda MPV ES equip with a cabin air filter?

Every time I open my A/C, a foul smell comes out with the vent. I read from a magazine that to remove a foul odor coming in from the air vent when the A/C is in operation, I should let the air flow with the A/C off before I switch off the engine to blow off the mold that accumulated in the evaporator. I did that but the smell still there. So I am guessing that it might be the air cabin filter. I am not sure if 2004 Mazda MPV ES is equipped with a cabin air filter or not.

Thanks!

    Thank you so much! I had a hard time figuring out where to find the cabin filter of my 2004 MPV. Your post helped me locate it. My cabin filter was really very dirty. So I decided to just buy a new pair of cabin filters, and replaced the old one. The air flowing from the vents are now cooler and fresher, but sometimes I still smell a foul odor, but it easily disappears after some time.



    Thanks a lot!

(cabin filter solution) Their is an cabin airfiliter behind the glove compartment (2004 mazda mpv) which is very easy to take off. Replace the airfilter or clean it with soap and water. Open the glove box and on the bottom left had side of the glove box if you apply enough presure on it by pulling it out towards you and slightly down it should pop off. The right side should slide out immediately following the left side pop. All it is, is a fork like claw holding on to a bar. On the ride side is a bar sliding into a hole. That should do the trick. After the first time its a sinch.

My 2003 TrailBlazer has a foul smell from the air system. What could be causing this smell? It's a sour smell not a dead animal smell. Is there a cabin air filter? I've read several posts and some say...


you can buy a deoderiser that kills all known airborn nasties,you spray it into the air inlet of any aircon unit,the only smell that it will NOT get rid of is cigarette smoke.that sticks to the filter/condenser and all the vents...nasty.

MPV 2002. Black particles come out from air vents


I get the feeling this is the first time you've used the heater? Its probably accumulated dust. As long as you don't get a burning smell or smell exhaust fumes you should be ok after a few hours use.

Changed the 2 cabin air filters but bad odor still comes out vent


If you run your Air cond on recirculate always try using an air sanitizer in your return vent. Or switch your A/C to outside air flow for for half an hour and raise the rear of your sunroof panel to vent the stale air do this till the smell dissipates and then close he sunroof and reset the A/C to recirculate if desired.

My 2004 MPV was just diagnosed with a corroded aluminum line to the rear cabin air-con unit. It cost me $50 to get the unit leak-checked. Also got a $700 estimate to replace the line.

Your cabin air filter needs replaced and would be best to have an odor elimnator sprayed in the vent system.

Certain smell is coming out from the air vent everytime i open the A/C.


cabin air filter is inside a compartment behind your glove box. pretty simple to fix if you can figure out how to take off your glove box door. the filter is little different than the air filter, thinner. May help to spray some Frigi-freeze or Fridgi-Fresh stuff on it to help kill bacteria. an auto parts store should have some for the a/c system.

2004 Mazda MPV cabin air is just not getting hot enough.


If changing the thermostat didn't work, have the heater control valve checked, it may not be opening all the way to let the coolant circulate thru the heater core fully.
