Hi guys,

I recently aquired my Cmax, 21'000 miles on the clock. 2005 Zetec model.
Everything with the car has been running fine, except one issue.
Now that the "new" car smell has mellowed, there seems to be quite a strong smell of something that is not pleasant at all. The only way I can describe this smell is one of acidic, or likestale food.

I have heard that sometimes air condition units may be atfault in some cars, and I was wondering whether anybody on here has experienced a similiar issue.

I do not smoke,or eat food in the car, and I have searched in between every crevice in the car for the culprit, but to no avail!

Please help!!

Agree, change the pollen filter first and then perhaps a trip to Kwik-Fit and have the Air con sorted out.
Did you buy this private or dealer? If dealer, then take it back and ask them to sort it out!

Our recently bought Cmax also hs a funny smell, previous owner had a dog but it only went in the boot and the floor mats don't smell and I have given it a clean to beat all cleans, even taking out and cleaning the spare tyre but still the smell remains!!
