The smell of vinegar may be noticeable from your car’s vents. It is possible that the smell is caused by rotten eggs, body odour, or other unpleasant omissions. The odours are not dangerous and can be easily treated.
Learn the Underlying Cause
The strong odour may be stronger every time the cabin is cooled down with an air conditioner. To determine if the smell persists, turn off the AC. If the smell disappears, it could be an indication that the AC is having problems.
What’s the Matter with the Smell?
Many drivers believe vinegar is the cause of the unpleasant odour. Mould that has formed in the cabin vents is usually what causes the odour. Mildew and mould can be caused by many things. This is often caused by leaves or dust that has accumulated throughout the year in the air vents. The problem can be resolved by replacing your car’s filter.
Do I need to talk to a mechanic?
Because it is difficult to find, it’s best to call a technician or mechanic to look into the problem. This will help ensure that the cabin smells fresh again. To prevent the smell from returning, the mechanic might replace the filter or do a deeper inspection. We provide more information upon request.
How to Fix the Problem
In most cases, you will be able to resolve the problem by using a cleaning product designed for air conditioners. The product’s enzymes will quickly eliminate the odour. This accelerates chemical reactions and stops the smell from returning.
To get rid of the smells, don’t use household cleaners. These products can cause serious damage to your vehicle’s internal parts and may allow the smell to return. You should also avoid breathing in chemicals used on your car’s AC conditioner while you are inside the vehicle.
