    how do you get rid of this bad odor coming from the car's air-con? it's quite irritating because the car is still new and it emitts this particular smell (like cloth that didn't dry well)..the smell stays for only about 20 sec from air-con start up. I don't know where it comes from. Wala naman sumakay/sumasakay/pinapasakay na taong mabaho dun hehehehe I need your help! Bka kasi may alam kayo na solution para ndi ko na sya dalhin sa dealer. Thanks!!

    Turn off the A/C but not the blower. Leave the blower on for a two to three minutes in high setting before turning the system off.

    That's probably coming from the moisture that accumulates near the AC system air inlet.

    ilang taon na yung sasakyan? you might want to have the A/C system cleaned.

    Common problem among bimmers. One cure is to replace the filters or you can spray Lysol while the AC is on at the vent intake.

    i don't suggest putting lysol spray while the ac is on at the vent intake, actually, lalong mangangamoy. magaamoy suka.

    there is a mold killer spray available in the market today. i just forgot the brand, but i've seen some at Ace Hardware.

    Ganyan din unit ko wayback in í01 kabago-bago amoy pawis ang singaw ng vent! Asked myself, ganito ba talaga pag diesel? Because it was my first diesel ride. What I did is I make it a point to turn off the a/c thermostat on-off switch first for a few minutes before shutting down the fan and engine. Eventually nawala ang amoy panis na pawis na akala ko yung mga mech sa casa hehehe.
