What smells like mold probably is mold. This is a common problem because of the moist environment of the air conditioning system. The solution is to turn the air conditioner on max and spray aerosol antibacterial spray into the high level air intake at the base of the windshield then shut down and let it work. You may have to do this quite often depending upon your environment. Obviously, you should not attempt to do this procedure while underway.
Locate the cabin air filter container on your Lincoln LS. Looking at the engine from the front, you will find the casing on the left side against the back firewall. The cabin air filter is mounted vertically and is approximately 6 by 9 inches and about 2 inches deep.
Remove the cowling cover by pushing in the black cover pins and lightly prying the cover off with a screwdriver. Lift the filter out of the container.
Vacuum the inside of the container to remove any dust or debris. Wipe down the inside and outside of the container and lid with a clean damp cloth, then dry it off completely.
Insert the new cabin air filter into the container and check to make sure it is seated properly. Cover the container by putting the lid back on and gently pushing down to make sure the pins click into place.
It's called a Cabin Air Filter. Not sure of the exact location in the cab, but places like Jiffy Lube have them in stock and change them all the time. Wall mart and Auto Zone type stores sell them also.
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.
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.
Regarding the door, you are prob going to need a body repair shop to do it properly.
The cabin ir filter is located behind the glovebox. Open the glovebox, remove all of your personal stuff. Disconnnect the shock absorber-looking thingy at the right side. Press IN on both sides of the glovebox "box", to defeat the 2 travel limiting pins on either side. The cabin air filter is located in a black or white rectangular looking door, pull it out and extract the filter.
