Bad Air


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

just wondered if anyone could shed any light on why the air blowing out of the vents on my IS200 has started to carry an odd odour. :sick:

It's difficult to explain the slight smell but it's a kind of damp musty odour. you can smell it in the air blowing from the vents but not when the AC is switched on.

Incidentally, the car was in for a 20,000 mile service a few weeks ago and they changed the pollen filter (without asking me and charged me 50 quid for the privilege! :tsktsk: ). could this have something to do with it?

Cheers guys. I guess it's just a coincidence that the smell arrived after the pollen filter was changed.

It seems odd that the smell disappears when you press the AC button.

I think I had better get me one of those sprays.
