    E-Con still smells?!!!

    Tried two different air con bombs. But my car still smells like sweaty clothes/damp when I put E-Con mode on. Air con is fine. I have changed the cabin filter to new carbon type? What now?

    I had this problem on our other car (VW Jetta). This fixed it for us: EINSZETT,CAR,AIR CONDITIONING,A/C,AIR CON,CLEANER,250ml Suit, 911,MX5, BMW,AUDI. | eBay

    It's a bit scarey piling foam down the centre vents but it worked when the bombs didn't.

    I just bought a powerful Ozone Generator to solve similar issue in another car.. let me know if you're ever close to Oxfordshire with a few hours to spare.

    I had the same issues with my A4. The answer was a £60 service with an A/C specialist. Smelled of disinfectant afterwards but no issues now after two years. You pays your money and you takes your pick ....................
