I am getting a very bad smell from the vents when I turn on the air conditioning.

Has anyone else had this problem or found a solution?

I researched previous posts and the evaporator having condensation is my best guess as to the source. I store the car indoors in a temperature controlled garage (the only change is that I recently starting using an indoor cover). I was going to try and spray Lysol into the system but I am unable to find the vent/location where it pulls air from inside the cabin when in re circulate mode.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

spray lysol thru o/s vents while not on recirc.

5 minutes before you park, turn up fan and turn off a/c to dry it

Never use recirc.

I would also go with the possibility of a dead animal in your vents

Don't use lysol.
Get some BG Frigi-Fresh. Check with your local BG dealer.
Lysol is usually the 1st step. If that doesn't do it, get BG.

I have the same smell. I'll try Lysol once my car's back. Does Frebreeze work too?

No, I think not. Lysol kills stuff, Febreze does not.

To mask the smell, I guess you could spray Febreze on cotton balls and stick them up your nose.rotfl
