    Air con smell!

    For some reason, all of a sudden the air coming in the car smells. It's like a stale, musty smell. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsdown.gif[/img] I've had the climate control working all winter and even had it low without any smell.

    This morning I had to turn it off and open the window. Does anyone know what could cause this and how I can cure it? Any suggestions appreciated as I really want to be able to use cooling at present.

    Regards

    Just read somewhere that the evaporator drain tube can get blocked. Anyone tackled this problem before?

    Also, if you haven't already done so, change the pollen filter, and get one of those Comma anti-bacterial air-con cleaning aerosols from Halfords.
