We have noticed a musty smell when the R350 starts. Pretty sure it is coming from the AC vents. It is progressively getting worse. It smells for just a minute or so then goes away and the AC continues to blow. Any suggestions?

I'm thinking about changing the cabin air filters this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for any and all input.

change the inside cabin filter, and set the a/c to outside air, and fan on high while engine is turned on...get a spray can of lysol and spray into the ourside air intake (usually by the lower part of the widshield) once should do it but may take a couple of times. musty smell is caused by condensation from a/c. hope this helps
