I bought that too. Had it sitting in my car for a week or so...can't decide whether or not to use it. I'd be interested in if it works for you.
you better use foam which goes directly into evaporator housing (into drainage tube).
nice username to thread topic ratioBad mold smell coming out of A/C vent developed in my new Corolla LE (at only 1,200 miles, only 1 month old). VIN number starts with "2T1" - where was it made? Live in humid environment, use recirculated A/C a lot. Dealership agreed smell was real bad, fumigated the A/C system and cabin with perfume scented isopropyl alcohol vapors. Fresh smell now for two weeks, hoping it won't come back. Problem is, if Toyota used some biodegradable material in the A/C duct, then mold will always come back and grow inside the duct. Only permanent solution may be a recall and refit of A/C ventilation with no bio-degradable materials.
It will take a while but if you continue to cut off the A/C compressor about a mile before your destination while letting fresh air blow through the system, it should kill the bacteria over time. Worked in my 06 GMC and I am doing it in my new camry hoping to prevent it. I just don't understand why some vehicles design has the issue while others( 93 Honda Civic, 03 Hoinda Accord and 88 Toyota Pickup--All my old cars) didn't ??We finally had a "cool" front here in Texas so I was able to use outside air the entire day yesterday without A/C hoping that the moldy smell would go away. This morning I turn the A/C on and could still smell it. Oh well.
Today after riding around for 2 days with the windows down, running the fan only at the lowest setting (sometimes off) and fresh air intake set - I ran the AC this afternoon, and absolutely no odor from the vent. Probably better than when I bought it new.Yes but when you turn the A/C back on do you get the moldy smell?
