    Unhappy Best Air Con Freshener / Cleaner?

    Does anyone out there know what the best air con cleaner / freshener is?

    My 53 2.2LS petrol was "done" at the dealer twice soon after buying it but never really made any difference, I also bought a couple of sprays from Halfords which didn't do much good. I have just recently p/x'd it, the smell was getting really bad shortly after turning off air con and it would linger for quite some time.

    My new 05 2.0DTI also has a slight smell after turning off A/C. I'm just dreading this getting any worse, but more importantly want to stop it.

    Any help, recomendations, advice etc. greatly received.

    Thanks

    Not sure if thats the one I have used in the past.
    Where in the car do you put it?
    I pulled the passenger seat back as far as poss and stood the can fairly central in the front foot well.

    you set the cabin vents to recirculate, then run the AC with the can primed, shut the doors and leave the car running to 10 mins..the can sprays a powerful antibacterial agent which is ducted through the vents and the agent kills all the bacteria in the ducts. as it's these bacteria that cause the bad smell...
