Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
1997 Dodge Caravan. When turning on the A/C or just the blower, some dust or dirt will blow out the vents and the air has a musty odor, maybe mold? What and how do I disassemble the air ducts to clean them out?
If you live in a dusty area it is a good idea to use the recirc button on your a/c control head. This will keep the dust to a minimum.
To get rid of the smell you can take a bottle of air freshener and spray it in the heater box air intake that is located just below the windshield on the right hand side of the van. Do this with the a/c on and blowers on high.
If you use recirc as much as possible the dust should slowly work it way out of the system.
If these fixes don't help the dash will have to be removed and a/c evaporator will have to be cleaned or replaced.
