so, the only way out of this is to install the kit?
btw, how much do these kits cost? cant find any pricing on the sellers site.
and does the dashboard have to be open to install one of these? can it be done anywhere else ( read cheaper) or by myself?

Well, it didn't go well. Van still smells moldy
What do I do next? How do I make sure that its not coming from catalytic converter? How to check for it?
If it was evaporator, it should have at least reduced the moldy smell. Correct?

does the odor smell like wet clothes mama left in the basket for a few days.
that was the smell in my 2000 model chevy truck and the fan blowing across the evaporator every hr solved the smell problem.
we purchased a new house AC/Heat pump unit 2 years ago, it is twice as big as the one taken out. The new unit has twice as many cooling fins and they are closly packed together,
each spring during AC startup it has a odor problem, the company gave me some type spray material that I have to spray on to the cooling fins to kill the odor. Same type problem, AC dealer said these new high eff units are all having the same odor problem, its moisture and until they are run a while they have to have a shot of chemical.
good luck with the problem.
