Default Aircon Smell - sigh

Hi all,
My car already has a nasty smell on starting the aircon, better after a while though...
Sianz...any suggestions to help?

Maybe it's because of your air-con filter? Try getting it changed?

Hi Forsei,

I have the same exact symptom as you as well...upon startup, it's like a bad smell but after like 10-15 secs, it goes away.

Was thinking of feedback only on 10K...

Wondering how come the bad smell surfaces so fast

moisture and mould in the cooling coils
turn to hottest temp and turn off recirculate, blow for 10mins

put a dehumidifier or two in the car (thirsty hippo)

Ya, damn sianz, since the car is still pretty new.
Tried Furry's method a bit, heh...a bit better...but yet to follow the instructions 100% la. Will do so, when have more time.
