Re: A/C smells bad

I hope it's not a dead animal. Though what I did once with another car is eventually I feel like the animal would rot so much that the smell completely goes away after running the vents for so long. That's what I did with an older car of mine

That could take years. I had a Corolla that had mice and I eventually took apart the venting (nearly impossible with these cars nowadays) and found where the mouse was and was able to clean up the residue left behind and that greatly improved things. Before it was start the car, blast the fan and go get a cup of coffee or stay and puke!
