2005 TL has musky smell thru vents    (Score: 1, Normal) 12-11-2009 22:51

Love the car.Mechanically reliable/got it with 6 sp.Usually kept in garage ,I left it out in the rain for a few days in Sept.Within days it developed a strong musky smell coming from the vents inside with heat or aircon.Cleaned leaves from outside vent,changed the interior airfilter behind the glove box,and sprayed the intake multiple times with a variety of disinfectants made for cars.The smell always comes back.I was thinking a dead mouse but it wouldn.t last for months.Are there any other things to address? Is there a drain tube in the aircon system that may be clogged leaving stagnant water? Are there other filters inside? The dealer told me spraying the intake with cleaner usually works.
