all cars these days have one. Its located behind the centre console, accessible from the passenger footwell, you will need to undo three bolts to get at it.

 

In preperation for the job, I highly recomend you and the family get together and play serious twister, its good practice :P

air con circulates the air through the condensor rather than just blowing the fresh air from outside through the fans. The air through the air con is supposed to be cleaner and of better quality as its been through the system a bit more and been treat and cooled etc.

I have footprints on my headlining...Unfortunately, not from anything kinky. Only from doing my pollen filter!! Or was that a heater resistor in a Fusion? Either way, they're both awkward to reach!!

AC will actively cool the air, whereas the blowers work just like a regular fan. AC will also dehumidify the air.

Actually, for the pollen filter, your best bet is to kneel outside of the car and with the seat right back you can just about reach it
