hello again.

can anyone tell me the exact location for the aircon unit, as i need to use the foam to try and get rid of the damp smell coming from heater outlets. i looked under the the passenger footwell and up towards the right i can see a black plastic casing. is this the casing for the aircon exchanger as i need to drill hole to get foam in. also the location of the the reciculating vent would be helpfull i cant see it on passengers side, is this where its located or is it on drivers side.

Used to mine every year. No need drilling holes any where.Have fan running and spray in air intake vent passenger side near wiper arm. Then as can instructions spray some internally in all vent outlets with fan stopped.Then leave to stand leaving windows open until it has cleared,do not breath in. Do all our motors the same way with product i get from sons garage

Do you think you could name this product Birdman because the earosol "bomb" sprays that you leave spraying in the car with the aircon on aren't any good. Personally I drop the glovebox and take out the pollen filter. Then with aircon on full blast and heat set to full I pump a dettox supermarket spray into the intake(costs £1.50, does 3 times) renew pollen filter and reassemble

Lift bonnet spray in passenger side which goes straight down into the fan intake behind the glove box.
Should add the early Sorentos do not have a pollen filler only the face lift onwards.

the air bomb type works but it wears of very quickly, if you can get right at the mould with the foam it lasts much longer
