Depends on make and model. Some cars have replacable cabin air filters which you could remove and spray cleaner into the box.

Air conditioning not coming out of all vents

Hi Linda it's possible that some of the air flaps behind the vents are damaged of stuck with something. Usually it is a big job and will require stripping out the radio and center panells to get a look inside. Regards Jim...

Hints for odor of oil coming through vents

The first thing most people should do is get their manual out and find out the location of the "cabin air filter". On many cars, it is behind the glove box. This is a filter that needs changed out from time to time. If you can't find it, drive to an auto shop, ask them to sell you the filter and explain to you how to find it and change it out.
Another thing that can be done for car odor is to clean the leaves off the outside vents near base of windshield, turn on AC, select fresh air (NOT recirculate) set fan at full blast, roll down windows, and spray the outside vents on both sides with Lysol. Scotty Kilmer has a great video on YouTube showing how this is done. "Getting Rid of Stinky Car AC Odors" .

When I turn my vent selector to defrost on the far right (air con off)the air conditioning comes on. The dash vents will blow ambient air, but defrost setting blows air con. Any ideas?

It's normal for the A/C compressor to come on with the defroster to dehumidify the air so the windsheild won't fog up under humid conditions. You can still control the air temp. out the vents with the temp. select switch.
