You can use disenfectant spray while the heater/ac is opperating on recirculating mode,or just place on highest heat mode,with fan on high and dry out the evaporator box-housing.for a few minutes.Before you exit the car. This should help ****** the mold-mildue smell.

Most common cause is water sitting in the bottom of the a/c heater box. Make sure the outside drain is open. There are spray products for using on the vents.

Moldy smell from ventillation


Many times small pieces of leaves and other organic stuff can get lodged in the evaporator core,making a musty stink.You will have to clean and disinfect the evaporator core to get rid of the smell.See if you can find a kit for this at a good parts store(like NAPA or Carquest)

IS THERE A CABIN FILTER ON MY 2006 CHEVROLET SILVERADO ?IS THIS WHY WHEN MY TRUCK IS CLOSED UP IT SMELLS LIKE MOLD OR MUSTT.AND WHEN I TURN ON MY HEAT AND DEFROST?


There are none on the 2006. There might be some moisture that entered the carpet in the vehicle at some time or another and caused a moldy or musty smell. There are several different air fresheners that can be added to the interior under the seat and in the carpets to help make is smell better.

Bad smell from a/c


Do you leave your climate control in the Auto position. This is bad. What happens is the evaporator which is located in the vents never dries out and you begin to grow mold. Does it smell musty, locker room type smell.
Also since it came out the heat vent it could also be a leaking heater core. Check you coolant level and reservior. If low this is an indication heater core is leaking. It may not of leaked enough to tell but usually these are the only reason the vents would smell unless a rodent ended up there and died.
