MY Car Smells like ASS

Post by MIKEP »

I bought a new SW20 (because i could) It has been outside for a while and it smells of Ass. Ive tried airing it out and putting some car freshner in it but now it smells like cherry blossem and ass.

I have vacumed i scrubbed it but still stinks taken out the carpets but unles you have windows down and a breeze blowing you can still smell it .I am nearly dry retching

Any suggestions and no laughing

Remove the carpets as they might be damp. There is padding under it that can go funky.

Does an SW have a fresh air panel filter somewhere? Could be a bit blocked and going rotten....

No cabin filter just straight vent in. Best to pull seats out and strip out carpet to find where donkey is hidden. Follow ur nose.
