    Agree with Welly, sounds like your air con needs a good clean out

    Had to do mine a while back, smelt like rotten turnips

    A new pollen filter and it should smell less, you'll be surprised how mucky it is

    Another one for the pollen filter here as well, only a few quid to replace, so might be worth giving that a go.

    Funny, my missus has been complaining her car smells of fish the last month or so, Telling her to drive with her legs closed didn't go down to well!

    On a serious not though, it did stink, been through about 3 magic trees and only now just getting rid of it, 2 months later!

    Haha, hilarious, that would have been the first thing I would have said as well and probably would have ended up with a smack!!

    Have a look in the aircon forum here, may or may not get some more info.
