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.

Where is the cabin air filter location on a 1994 mercury capri


1994 Mercury Capri ac does not have a cabin air filter. Weak air flow and bad smell could be debris in the fresh air/ac inputs. Check under the hood for debris where the air enters, the area under the wiper, and behind the vents inside, they get clogged if you park under a shedding tree...Chris

Nasty molding musty smell...started iout of the blue. It is now early spring have not used A/C yet. It is making me sick


Musty smell comes from three possible situations.
First is simply a spilled liquid on the carpet. A thorough carpet cleaning will get this.
Second, water entering the body of the car. (IE: leaking door seals , window seals, or the hardest to find... coming in under the carpet from the floor pan) Barring leaks from the seals and spills, The floor pan has drain holes and rubber plugs that may dry out and allow water from below the car to enter.
Third, Your A/C unit is developing this condensation in the Air flow Box (complicated air flow box under dash holding your heater core and A/C core) This is a common problem, but requires a de-mold solution best applied by a Pro. You can buy over the counter solutions (sprays) and then make sure you run the heater after each A/C run. That works for many as it dries out the condensation the A/C produces.

Hope this helps.

Car smells of mold air rugs are dry what could it be?


It may be your cabin air filter if your car is equipped with one, or your A/C condensation drain pan is clogged and holding water that smells over a period of time.

I hope this helps

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.

Air conditioning system musty smell when used


There should be a cabin filter. Call the parts store to see if they stock one for your car in particular.

Cabin filters are located in stream of the outside air flowing in. I know on a '99 Galant, you just had to take out the glove box, loosen two screws, and out she slid.

It'll be right near the blower motor, above the passenger's foot rest, behind the glove box. Simple hand tools will do it.

Be careful when pulling it out, as it may have leaves and acorns or fur all over it. Simply slide in the new filter and you're done.

You'll be surprised at how much better it'll smell, and how much harder your A/C and heat will blow without the constriction of a dirty filter.

Most cars have the cabin filters behind the glove box, but if not there, then they'll have them under the hood, on the firewall, on the passenger side. Usually inside a small black plastic box.

If your car DOESN"T have a cabin filter, then the musty smell is stuff that is sitting in the heat/ AC system. You can try spraying pine sol or Febreeze down the air intake hole for the system. Mind you, this is not the same as the air intake for your cars engine!

The air intake for the cabin filter will be on the passenger side, under the hood, most likely under a plastic cowling of sorts.

Good luck!

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.

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


(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.

Air condition problem


It might be because recent owners smoked cigarettes in the vehicle. Also, the AC vents may have a little mold which can cause a bad smell until the air flows through.
