Smelly Aircon at start up

Anyone had smelly aircon when starting the car. It smells like a damp sponge has been left inside for days - you know! it dissappears after 30 seconds or so, but I might get it checked out.

You can fix this yourself FORTE make a tin of air con treatment that you "set off" in the car which cleans all the fungus and mould out of your air vents that builds up over time and its this that makes it smell eek!

A quick fix is to dry out the system. Turn heater to high for 15-20 min. and dry out the moisture.
Nice on a hot day laughing

turn the aircon off for about half an hour and drive (preferably on a motorway ) with ventilation on full speed (Hi or Lo doesn't really matter) this will dry out the system and get rid of mould and stuff..
