    Default Awfull smell inside car

    Hi people,,,,,, hav'nt been on here for quite a while. Still got the veccy but it has an awfull smell coming from the front dash area (i think) lol.

    It smells like sour milk but we havent spilled any in it, so it aint that.

    Any ideas ??????

    Clean out the scuttle drain as suggested... then remove the pollen filter (replace if required) but with the filter removed and the fan on full speed, full cold get plenty of squirts of ordinary anti-bacterial surface cleaner into the opening, before reassembling it all.
