    Common Toyota, Lexus, and Scion problem. Go to Toyota , they sell a two part kit to clean and deodorize ac system. You shoot foam up drain hose and seal up drain, then spray the other spray into intake on cowl. Had to do this once a year on both of my Scion TC's

    Fram fresh breeze helps worth the buy, I live on the coast here in the bay area so I always have the AC on to fight the humidity. I get that this iodine smell after hours of driving and leaving it over night. My best new practice is to turn AC off when I can and let it dry out. Just had the AC refilled and blowing around 35 degrees( very happy for when I go out to the valley or Southern California.

    I had a musty/mildew odor coming from the A/C in my Mustang. I sprayed Ozium into the cowl intake and it didn't really change anything, but then I blasted some Lysol in there and it seems like it killed whatever was lurking in the core. It's been stink-free for a month now, will continue to evaluate it throughout the summer. My next step would have been some kind of bleach solution.
