My AC blows cold air but just the air is insane... hoping someone can advise on what shop does this type of job STEAM?... I called several shop and said that they dont do that type of service i wanted a steam to clean out the smell and mold and mildew.. not sure about this cause im not familiar about this.. I had other cars that smelled but usually goes away after 30 seconds.. but this is giving me a headache.. need the smell to go away... suggestions?

Have you changed the cabin filters out?

You can try turning the air on full blast and spraying lysol disinfectant spray through the exterior vents.

My Z had a musty AC smell and nothing I tried was able to fix it. It's definitely a job for the pros. That said, I dunno what procedure is best or where to have it done. Good luck Sean!
