    confused Damp smell ?

    Ok, my air con has stopped working this year, did have it regassed last summer and was fine but the last month the inside of the car stinks of damp, cleaned the skuttle tray which was blocked and changed pollen filter and sprayed ant bacteria inside.

    Still smells, what do I do ?

    Have you checked youre carpets in the foot wells. if the skuttle panel was blocked the water can get in side the car and wet the carpets.

    Normally the windows start to mist when you have dampness caused by a water leak.Is this happening?
