    Quite foul!

    ECON mode... can make you pass out

    AIR CON is working like a charm though touch wood.

    Never had this problem in 7 years!

    Thanks... here is what I did...

    1. Turned up AC/Heat to Max and Re-circ
    2. Released 2 x cans of aircon clean by Comma (sold by Halfords)
    3. The cans say that they last for 5 minutes but mine went for 10 minutes!
    4. Let the air con run an additional 5 minutes after the cans had finished releasing the cleaner
    5. Followed instructions on can, opened windows and left for 5 minutes to get rid of the cleaner smell

    So far so good... checked the cabin filter and it looks filthy so will replace it before the odour returns.
