Default What'* that STINK !!!

I don't usually turn off the A/C but it happened to be off this morning and the whole interior of the car smelled like someone stepped in dog doo.
Nasty smell.
It'* been turned off before and I have smelled a light musty smell but now it'* downright BAD.
I have installed a new $50. carbon passenger compartment filter only a couple thousand Km ago and it didn't make any difference.

I've read about the service bulletin but it refers to mildew build up in Bonne'* with a VIN # earlier than mine.

Has anyone else had this problem

Is it an simple dealer deodourizing job that'* covered under warranty

Your still good with warranty so the let the dealer do it, but it sounds like evaporator drain tube is blocked. The probable odor is caused by mold/mildew build up within the HVAC case and on the evaporator and heater cores.
Theres a small heater for the evap system that is suppose to keep it dry and mold free, have them check that too

Most A/C will smell right after you turn it off, if you let the air flow a bit. However, sometimes it gets out of control, like yours.
