Re: Air Con
OK, I have taken out the pollen filter again (still perfectly clean) and sprayed Cif Oxy-Gel (kitchen cleaner) all over the front edge of the evaporator. I then ran the heater full whack for about 15 mins with and without the pollen fiter cartridge area covered. The water/cleaner came out the bottom. When it was mostly dry, I replaced the filter and put the fuses cover etc. back together. I then ran the car on hot (with and without recirc) for about 20 mins on the motorway, and then let dry out.
I could not feel a pipe at the bottom of the air con box (where the liquid comes out), but it did seem to have a membrane/pipe or something, and was a bit slimy. Maybe the actuall drain pipe is further under the car. I was unable to get a coat hanger into it.
