  1. Smax Titanium Aircon Smells

    Hi, Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately it only masked the smell for a short amount of time. I ended up resolving the smell by booking the car into my local Ford dealership, they were able to insert pipes directly into the A/C which disinfected and sterilised the A/C unit. At the same time they changed the pollen filter, after running the air con for a short amount of time the smell has now gone. Too be fair to the Ford dealership the whole process (including recharging the A/C) only cost £120. Regards
  2. Hi, I've just purchased a SMax 2.0TDi Titanium and have noticed that when you switch the A/C on it is very smelly. I've seen various posts on other websites saying that it's due to "condensation forming in parts of the ventilation system and not being dried out properly, so the moisture goes stale and bacteria starts to grow". Is this something I can correct (bearing in mind I'm not very car engine literate) or will I need to book it into a garage for an A/C service? I'd appreciate any advice on how to resolve this. Thanks in advance.
