    Probably the pollen filter needs changing, or you have an underlying personal odor problem

    Follow jam On Twitter
    Change the pollen filter easy to do. £7.00 from Vaux and purchase some A/C cleanser from Halfords (not vaux as halfords is cheaper). Follow instructions and your car will smell like lemon for about a month.
    Its a jam thing

    Hi mate

    My guess pollen filter, which has been suggested or dust!

    Did you vacuum before changing the heater?

    Some dust may of got into the circulation ducts and pipes!
