R350 2007

I am looking for a solution to an A/C problem. When I intially turn on the A/C a foul odor comes through the air ducts. After about 10 seconds it stops and is fine again. Does anyone know what might be the cause?

Welcome to the forum.

Some people have reported a growth of mildew or mold in the network of ducts. There have been solutions posted but I don't remember the details. It involves spraying some disinfectant into the ducts. Try putting "odor" into the search engine and see what comes up.

You could also try changing the cabin filters but I don't think those are the problem. Good luck.
