SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: XC90 2008 CABIN AIR FILTER REPLACEMENT

Under the glove box.

Put the seat back all the way rearward (just to give you more room to move.

On the panel just directly below the glove box, there should be two Torx 25 screws. Remove those and pull that panel downward and rotate the right side back, that should release it from the kick panel on the left.

Now towards the back you should see the blower motor. Kind of an off white color and a black panel on the bottom of that.

It's held in with four gold colored Torx 25 screws. Remove those and the pollen filter should be in there.

If you have the thin pollen filter, you can get away with simply removing the two golden Torx 25 screws closest to you, carefully bend down the black plastic cover (carefully enough to squeeze the pollen filter past, I've seen people break them cause they do it too much).

If you have the thicker pollen filter, you have no choice but have to remove the four screws.

SOURCE: cabin filter element location

Filter is located behind the glove box. All you need is a screwdriver to replace.

1. Open the glove box and empty to take the weight off the box.

2. On the right side there is a plastic hinge like device held on by one Phillips head screw. If you have trouble removing with a Phillips screwdriver you can remove with a narrow flat head screwdriver. Remove the screw and slide hinge off the mount.

3. To drop the glove box press the sides slightly inwards while 'forcing' it open beyond it's normal stopping point. Careful as when it releases it will fall wide open and may even fall from its hinged area. Set it aside.

4. Behind the glove box there is probably some fiberous material inserted to prevent noise like squeaking when it rubs. It is sticky on one side to hold it in place. Just remove and place out of the way.

5. Behind the fiberous material there'll be a cover which kinda looks like a grille. Mine was white and it is in the center of the opening. Remove it by releasing the clips at the left or right. It comes right out.

6. When the cover comes off slide the filter out and replace it. The filter lays flat and just slides in and out easily. However, if it has been some time since you replaced be prepared for a lot of debris on top of the filter such as leaves, grass or other general type of debris that has been sucked into the filter. It also may be the source of any bad odors that you smell through the air conditioning system.

7. Reverse the process. Replace the cover and push the glove box lid back into place. When you replace the glove box be careful to make sure the hinge you initiallly removed the screw from is not left behind the glove box or you will have to remove again to get it out. Replace the screw and do not over tighten as it screws into plastic and then your done.

Just to the right and above the accelerator pedal you need to remove the left sound insulator panel. Then remove the filter access cover by pushing down and then pulling out. It kinda pops off. Remove the tape on the first filter and then remove the filter by pulling the filter tab. Remove the tape on the second filter and then remove second filter by pulling the filter tab. Remove the third filter by pulling the filter tab. I know you didn't ask about all that but just in case you wanted to replace them.

Fresh air intake door for cabin slaps back and forth several times before settling into position. Recirculate position makes no noise, just fresh air position.


my guess> , seeing as Im blind and most answers , not hands on and blind are totally a waste...... ask your mechanic.
the cable clamps fell off the cable driving this flap and is now loose.
the cable provides natural friction to prevent this.
but id have to , look.

2001 Chevy blazer air conditioning blower is throwing very little air. what and how I can get it back to normal?


Is the issue there when using heat and air-con?
If so, then check the blower motor and fan switch for fault.

Check any cabin air filter if fitted for clogging.

If only an issue with hot air flow, then check the heater matrix hasn't bunged up.

If only a cold air flow, then check the air conditioning car evaporator in the cabin for signs of clogging.

Clogging can be more of an issue in pet owner's cars as pet hair readily clogs up these two components in cars fitted with no interior air cleaner element/filter.

Smell comes thru air vent.


You might have both. The fresh air intake is under the windshield wipers, that vent takes in the fresh air from outside. The filter is usually in the rear seat section on vans and suvs, somewhere, sometimes up front under the dash. You can switch your ac or fresh air control to recirculate and it will cut off the outside air. We always do it on dusty roads and dead skunks. Hope this helps.

2007 F-150 Supercrew Lariat Cabin Air Filter


According to the shop manual you do not have one.
Air Distribution and Filtering adobe.gif Printable View (79 KB) NOTE: The air distribution system of this vehicle cannot be equipped with a cabin air filter.
There are 2 sources of air available to the air distribution system:
  • Outside air
  • Recirculated air
Recirculated air is automatically used when the electronic manual temperature control mode selector is set in the MAX A/C or OFF modes and can be selected in any mode other than MAX A/C, OFF or DEFROST by selecting the RECIRC button. Recirculated air is available in all modes except DEFROST. If the vehicle is equipped with an electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system, recirculated air is used in OFF and is available in all modes except DEFROST. RECIRC mode is a timed function in FLOOR and FLOOR/DEFROST.
Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the electronic manual temperature control (EMTC) function selector switch position, or is controlled by the EATC system in the AUTOMATIC mode. The air distribution mode on EATC vehicles may be overridden by the driver if desired. Air distribution doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing and the plenum chamber. An electronic mode door actuator is used to position these air distribution doors. One air inlet mode door is used to switch between FRESH or RECIRC air inlet. An electric actuator is used to position the air inlet mode door.
Air enters the passenger compartment from the:
  • instrument panel A/C registers.
  • heater outlet floor ducts.
  • windshield defroster duct.
  • side window demisters.
  • center flow-through console (if equipped).
Passenger compartment air is exhausted from the vehicle through open windows or body air vents.

Try checking the cabin air filter, if equiped. It may be clogged making it draw more cold fresh air. Check your owner's manual to see if you have one or not, and it's location.
