    Default 207 smelly aircon...

    Hi all, is there a way to stop the air con blowing out air that smells like a wet dog for the first 1minute of operation.

    Ive already replaced the pollen filter thinking it'll be full of crap but no luck.

    It smells like stale water in the air ducts somewhere....

    Cheers

    I think this might be an optional extra. I know of 2 new Peugeot owners that had the same issue from the day they got the car home.

    My daughters VW Polo had this problem and it was fixed by replacing cabin pollen filter under dash which was a 2 minute job. Before I did i wiped ducts with disinfectant and emptied half a can of disinfectant inside ducts. Afterwards no More smell....

    Spray some glen20 down the vents - use a straw spray nozzle
