Noticed a musty smell in the car today, is it possible that the ac condensate drain has become blocked?
How would I go about checking/cleaning?

Inspect air filter and air inlet grill for moisture or debris.

check for wet carpets.

Do you only get the musty smell when first Turing the blower on?

Ok great, I will check the windshield drain, under the hood, and think I may have now located the ac condensate drain tube (passenger foot-well behind the left kicker panel) apparently these can become blocked and then leak water inside the cabin, one has to blast some air up the tube to clear it.
I replaced the cabin air filter a while back and am familiar with it's location, will also check around here, thanks R29

Not sure yet I just noticed when wifey pulled up yesterday when I got in.

Musty smell when first turning air on could be Bactria formed in the hcav and would have to be deodorized.

wet carpet could be clogged drain, windshield leaking or door leaking.

that’s if it’s a musty smell, coolant smells is a different issue.
