    Eggy smell to climate control

    Just started noticing yesterday that I have an Eggy smell coming from my climate control

    Only lasts for 2mins when it's first used from cold though

    Any ideas??

    Do you use it often? The gas can become stagnant if not used for a while. A recharge of gas may be on order

    If you can smell the gas you have a bigger problem and it would be empty within miniutes

    You need to take the scuttle panel off,
    wipers off and carefully unclip the scuttle panel, filter is on the passenger side....

    I've got a sneaky idea that it's to do with my washer jets!
    Ive not sprayed my washer jets when I got in the car today until tonight!
    If I spray them as soon as the cars started and the climate control is blasting the windscreen the smell appears!
    No washer jets but climate control and it's fine!

    Could be manky washer water. One of our cars at work smelt real bad of farts when you cleaned the windscreen...the washer fluid had gone off!!. Give it a fill up with warm water with some detol in it or something and then spray it all through before refilling as normal.

    My AC smelt by the way...new pollen filter cured it. Dead easy to fit and no need to remove wipers etc as there was a little flap on my scuttle that I could lift up to get to it etc.
