#1 of 3 Removing Mold from Honda Accord A/C system
Apr 13, 2011 (10:33 am)
Hi! I've got mold in the vents and A/C system of my Honda Accord (according to my dealer). I've searched online and found two ways of treating this:
1. Remove the air vents from the dashboard and spray mold enzyme solution into the vents.
The problem: I have no idea how to remove the vents...they don't seem to pop off, and I'm worried about breaking them. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
2. Spray lysol into the air intake for the A/C system.
The problem: I have no idea where the air intake is. Is it the plastic grid of square holes under the hood, just beneath the windshield? Or is it somewhere else?
Thanks for any assistance you can offer. I've got the owner's manual, but it doesn't seem to have any info on the vents or the air intake.

If you go to posting #6 of this thread, you will see one manufacturers service method of fixing the issue (after verifying that the car doesn't have any other sources - such as water leaks, wet carpet, plugged drains, etc).
The only DIY part would be making sure the odor isn't from another source, and possibly changing a cabin air filter - since you don't say what year your car is, cannot say if it has one.
