[DML] Re: Nasty smell still.



If the smell generally intensifies when you have your vent on, then you 
will want to remove the blower motor from the passenger side footwell 
and stick a flashlight and compact mirror up in there to see inside 
your evaporator box.

I had a nice mouse house in my engine valley, evaporator box, and 
behind my grill. 

For the one in the evaporator box, I was able to use a thin shop vac 
hose and suck out the debris, and spray disinfectant in there. Also, I 
bought a product from carquest that was essentially an A/C mold/mildew 
killer. You turn your A/C on regular, 4 (so it sucks in outside air), 
close your doors, and spray this green mist into the air intake below 
your passenger windshield wiper. Then once all is sprayed in, hop in 
the car and turn the a/c to max (to recycle the air) and let it run for 
20 minutes. Killed the odor and haven't smelled anything since in 2 
years.
