Does it smell like dirty socks?
I have no idea on the cost for the GM kit - my car was done under the B2B warranty.How much would it be for the whole GM kit thing, or do you think spraying Lysol into the intake while cranking the fresh air setting would work just as well? Also, how much generally would I be looking at for a new cabin air filter to be installed or is it relatively easy to do myself and I'd just buy the ~$20 part?
You might as well change the cabin air filter and put an activated charcoal filter in there. It should be done annually anyway - mine's coming up this spring after road salt season.Went and sprayed some Glade (all I had at the moment) into the driver-side air intake while fresh air was cranked full blast. Can't tell as of now but it did seem to help initially so hopefully that will help.
My dad has an industrial air compressor or something in our garage he said I may not need to replace the cabin air filter immediatley, I could just take it out and blow the piss out of it with that air compressor so maybe I'll wait on the air filter replacement.
