I'm sure many of you read my post about my rig smelling like a Highschool Gym Locker over in the blue room. Well I have an update to my smellines. ;D Had some time today to pull things apart and take a look at stuff. Yes, the in cabin filter was black and discusting. Decided to make a quick trip over to Pep Boy's to get a replacement filter but they needed to special order one at $22.00. So I passed and decided to take the recommnedation of another forum member who seems to know a lot about AC. I pulled the filter and soaked it in a 50/50 solution of very hot water and Simple Green for like 10 minuets. I then rinsed the filter out in very cold water and got as much muck off as I could. I then tossed the filter in the close dryer for 15 minuets and "Vola" it was dry and did not shrink either . Decided just for the hell of it to shot some strawberry fragrance onto it to make my rig smell like sugar and spice and everything nice. ;D ;D Put her all back together and ran the AC on high for like 5 minuets and no smell. BTW the filter was white when I was done cleaning it. SO for about $7.00 in a bottle of green Simple Green and like 30 minuets of time I got her all smelling good again. Cheers!
