what type of smell? coolant/mouldy? is it warm when its meant to be cooling? is it only happening on recirc or fresh air aswell? have you tried spraying a can of the air-con duct cleaner?

The only air filter for the air intake for cabin air is what you see under the wiper arms. This only filters out leaves and other debris etc, not dust ar any other airborne material. The only other aircon filter sometimes refferred to is the sealed in-line filter/drier which is in the refrigerant line behind the front grill on the passenger side.(nothing to do with the air going into the cabin)

I have a similar problem

Hi Guys, 3 weeks ago, I bought a VT Series 2 Acclaim and the aircon worked fine for the first week. Since then, whenever I turn off the car and go shopping (for example) then come back and start up the car and the aircon, I get this acrid smell coming out of the air vents in the front of the dash. It really bites the back of the nose and is making me sick.. This smell only lasts a short while, until the car starts to cool down again, then it's gone til next time...

Any ideas?

Cheers

Steve
