    The RE-CIRC inlet is under the glovebox. Normal heater inlet is under skuttle panel.

    Detol spray works too

    NO, put the car on AC and recirc and face vents with them all open.

    Squirt the stuff around the footwell area on passenger side. Shut door and leave on for a few minutes on full blower.

    Is that what you did with detol?

    I've used similar foam-type cleaner, it is better to use with the hose supplied. Put the hose under the scuttle panel, to the blower motor (remove the pollen filter first http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15090) and empty the canister.

    I've used this foam-type cleaner:



    These foamcleaners should be put via the air inlet channel into the evaporator, not via footwell, pls see this user instruction: http://www.crcind.com/wwwcrc/tds/TCA3%20AIRCOCLEAN.PDF

    (The usual spray-type cleaners are used in the footwell with recirc...)

    With the foam ones, if the idea is to celan the evap/condenser, I have always thought that putting the hose into the drain would be a good idea. Anyone tried?

    The 'spray inside the car jobbies' have done nothing for me other than lighten my wallet!
