Horse poo smell

Post by szaBIKA » Mon Jan 28, 2019 4:33 pm

Hi! I am finally proud owner of a Cactus C4, from 2016, bought in the weekend from Yeomans Citroen, Fareham. All looks good right now, just one annoing thing which we didnt really felt when we test the car. And this is the smell of the horse poo. It starts to feel after starting the engine/airocondition. I know it sounds funny but I dont know what to do with this? Anybody happened the same? Or any advice? Thanks . Otherwise i just love the car. Hope some of you can help, from where to start!
Thanks in advance for helps

You need your Air con disinfecting.
Very cheap and easy to do
Just buy an Air Con Bomb:

I use them all the time as I am a Car Valeter/Detailer

Its a well known effect in many cars when bacteria has built up in the a/c - you can probably get rid of it by changing the pollen filter elements plus an antibacterial spray into the a/c inlet where external air is drawn into the system

Hi. I used that spray, and after 1 week still nice smell in my car. Just a little bit sometimes I still feel that smell. But much better than before. Thank you!
