Noticed a mildew/musty smell about a month ago. It seems like it comes from the driver's side but not 100% sure. Husband gave it a quick look over and can't seem to find the cause. None of the flooring is wet or has been wet as we couldn't find any staining. It has to be sorted. I can't stand the smell...gives me a headache. Husband puts up with the smell more than I can.
Any idea where this smell could be coming from??
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there, thanks for writing in. There is specialized equipment to kill the mildew in the vehicle A/C with a machine that uses Ozone to kill and deodorize the A/C. This process is the only approved method to kill the mildew. It’s only a temporary repair and may need to be done on a regular basis to keep the growth of mildew down to a minimum.
