Default Musty Smell from AC

Hi guys

I'm getting a musty smell from the AC when the AC is on but not when the normal blower is on. Does anyone know where the location of the AC drain is for the XC60?

Also any ideas on what can be used to treat the problem?

Ray

Beware the threat of legionaires disease!

Can`t stand air-con myself, if I`m hot I open a vent or window, if I`m cold I put on more clothes.
Even windscreen washer bottles without additive in the water can bring health issues for some:

You might have a look here http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/forum/po...ex.htm?t=70253

Not sure if this is the problem. Do you use the air con regularly? I seem to remember that it should be used at least weekly to keep everything oiled and in good order.

Do you smoke in the car? This can make the A/C smell
