2015 Musty AC Vent Odor

15

Asked by Jun 14, 2017 at 11:21 AM about the 2015 Nissan Murano SL AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I turn on my AC for the first time each day it smells
like a basement. Nissan told me to run the heat during the
Winter to see if I had the smell this summer. Yup - It is still
there. I replace the cabin filter last summer with. No
success.  Nissan sprayed chemical deoderant. No success
plus I'd rather not breath in chemical odor eaters. Does
anyone have any ideas? Nissan said they would charge me
if they pulled it apart and it was not their fault.

You would need to clean the fins on the condenser itself, the smell is from bacteria and in most cases tearing apart the dash. You can try running the heat now at full for a good 30 minute ride a couple days to see if it helps.
