Does any one no how to get rid of this its only just started and isnt as bad with the aircon on. Used to get the same with my celica apparently it was a bactiria build up and could be fixed by putting lots of steam into the system which clears it? any ideas?

We use one call the bomb, Leave engine running with a/con off and heater on recirc. Place bomb in passenger footwell and trigger in. Leave it car for 30mins all is done. Nice and odur free. Change pollen filter aswell.

You can get these at halfords, just done my E39, their one leaves A/c on recirc and spray in rear footwell. Came out really well, A/c now clean and no more damp type smells.
