How to deodorize your ride?

Recommended Posts

Regular members may remember my thread from April, this one;-

 

Here we are 4 months on and there's still a lingering niff. I took the moth-balls out pretty rapidly, they were affecting my mind (by causing temporary sanity).

 

So, whilst there's not actually a horrible smell there's still a background pong.

 

Any ideas what to use that can finally finish off the job, the pong could have found its way into the cloth seats ?

I don't know if they still do but Tesco had STP upholstery cleaner, it is the best, easy to use with great results...Do not use recirculating air with your A/C.....

Just pick up a load of young ladies with perfume on.

 

Seriously the dead mice smell in our previous truck's air-con we kept spraying the new filter with scene.

Oh, did you renew the A/C filter...?

Good point, I'm not even sure the Ranger has an A/C filter.

Have look in your handbook, that thing will definitely hold the stink chum...But keep recirculating air off and crack one window opening a little when you go out....

Every pick up truck has an A/C filter - normally very accessable. Our Vigo one is out behind the glove box - 10 seconds.

I think the Mitsu didn't, but may have now...?

Well, I can't see a filter and I didn't see one when I had the blower motor out to clean out the evidence bodies debris.

 

The manual doesn't show one in the pictures (it's in Thai or course).

@transam Yup I found that video, whilst the blower assembly looks similar to mine there's no pull out filter there.

 

Truck is 2005-2006.

We had a rats nest in our 2009 Ranger,in the blower motor.I took it all apart and cleaned it out the best i could.Next day a slight smell,not so bad.

The day after a horrible smell,very bad.

Took it apart again and there was a complete nest along with smashed

dead smelly rat babies.

Cleaned it again and it smelled bad for a month,maggots were blown from the aircon.

Took it to the shop this time and they told me the Rangers seem to attract a lot of rats for some reason.(we had to fix wires from the signal lights four times already)

TheTiger we had kept the rats out od the blower if we put the aircon on recirculating.In the ford they can still get in.A plate was put over the entrance of the fresh air and now no more rats.

There is some kind of chemical for cleaning but we did not use it.

The problem seems to be fixed now.
