Stinky air conditioning
First warm day a few weeks ago we noticed this. I bought a new cabin air filter, pulled out the old one, and before putting in the new one I just sprayed in some supermarket household disinfectant. I kept the car running with the A/C on, and would spray in periodic blasts while regularly changing the airflow settings. I avoided spraying in huge amounts at a time, but emptied half a can over fifteen minutes. Worked like a charm. I'm just wondering if this was the best way to go about this task. I figure the biggest risk was getting too much spray in there at once and possibly damaging the blower.
