That job I haven't done yet. the smell you are getting is it a real sweet smell? If it is possible antifreeze leak. Beyond that I;m not really sure. Unless someone poured something down into the cowl vent. Do you get the smell when the ac is on with vents open or recirculator button pushed?

Ac smell in 2009 Mercedes c300


Check drain and unclog if required.
Remove air cabin filter (see you tube for instructions). Make sure it is done in a clean place so no dust or dirt gets in while you do this.
Block Air Cabin filter opening with duct tape.
Set fan to 50% (3/4), temperature to minimum
AC must be OFF
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray half a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield
Turn off fan
Let it sit for 30 to 60 min
Set temperature to max and fan to max
Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray the second half (250ml) of a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield.
Turn heater and fan OFF
Take off duct tape and replace the air cabin filter (new one is better)
If you don't take off the air cabin filter, a lot of the alcohol or disinfenctant (like Lysol) may be stuck in the filter causing an irritating smell.
Replace Air cabin filter if possible.

2001 altima . does this car have a air filter for the A/C system?


No, not really. What I mean it is not really directed for the AC, HOWEVER, what it is is a cabin air filter, which of course helps with the ac, heat and vent flow. Which indirectly will allow your ac to flow better and take away some of this wet moldy smells cause from moisture.

This type of filter is normally removable from somewhere in the glove compartment area. It sits in between the fan blower and the cooling evaporator. It provides cleaner internal air and also keeps the evaporator from clogging up which would affect cooling.

However, in that year supposly there is no cabin air filter, but The Haynes manual, although covering 1993 to 2004, says it's in the blower assembly and NAPA is willing to sell a part alleged to be a cabin air filter for a 2001 Altima.Now, i do know there is after market adaption cabin filter that a person can put on, however, in less you had a bad problem it would not be most likely worth the cost and trouble. I hope this helps some. Thanks Mike

When my ac comes on on a hot day the air smells like mildew?? Does the cabin filter fix that?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Actually if there is mildew in the system it takes a serious cleaning of the evaporator coil and near by plastic housing / ducting to get rid of the smell. Mildew usually starts forming on the evaporator coil and compartment when the compartment drain gets to be really slow from debris or a dust clog. You can try filters and air fresheners but all they will do is mask the mildew odor. Once the mildew routine starts the only real fix is a serious cleaning of the evaporator coil, compartment and nearby air ducting. Often it takes a good mild and mildew remover to get rid of the problem completely. The evaporator compartment will for sure have to be opened up. If a service shop is going to do the cleaning job correctly they will most likely pump out the freon in the AC system and remove the evaporator coil for proper cleaning. It is not a cheap fix as it is labor intensive and requires the AC system to be drained and re-serviced. Demand that they clean the compartment drain during the cleaning process. My comments are what it really takes to purge the mildew from the AC system correctly. Your call as to fix it or live with it.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Is there an a/c filter on the 1993 Honda Accord EX ?


There is no filter for the AC or heater in the 93 Accord. Air for the AC either recirculates from the passenger compartment or is drawn in through the vents below the wipers outside the car. You might try spraying something nice-smelling into those vents to see if it is drawn into the car while the AC is running, set to outside air.
Hope this is helpful.

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid that smells funny when I turn on the AC. I have looked it up and the forums say to change the Cabin Air Filter. I can't find where the filter is?!


You do not have a cabin filter....Two things......you need to check (freon preasure) you may have a freon leak from the AC evap coil behind the instrrment panel,the smell is AC freon pag oil from the AC system, it smells funny. Or you may have mildew build up on your evap coil there is a spray to disinfect the coil.Check auto zone or pep boys....Good luck my friend

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.

SMELL IN SIDE THE CAR FROM AC


There's no cabin air filter on your vehicle. What happens is dust, lint or so-on gets trapped in the evaporator core for the a/c and starts to stink over time. Ask your local parts store for a de-oderizor spray for your a/c.

Ac smells


I am having the same issue. I changed the cabin air filter (Located under the passenger side dash - remove 4 small screws) and still cannot get rid of the musty / urine smell. I have tried all the "over the counter" ac unit sprays and I also took the car into a place that used some kind of a fogger inside the car.Unfortunatly, the smell returns. Let me know if you have any luck.I have tried all the recomendations such as, Lysol, bleach, fogger and still nothing. I believe the AC unit needs to be exposed and cleaned before the problem is resolved.Good luck!
