Air Con cleaning by Tourerfogey

User avatar
I have questions please :

Do these cans of air con cleaner ( the type that you leave to discharge in the car with the engine running) actually do anything?

Do I keep the old pollen filter in place and fit the new one after cleaning?
Do I remove the old filter, then clean, and then fit the new filter?
Do I remove the old filter, fit the new one and then use the cleaner?

Thank you :)

You put the aircon into recirc, so the air no longer comes through the pollen filter.

So, it matters not one whit.

I would spray some proprietary bactericide into the air intake behind the pollen filter and run it without recirc. for a few minutes before using the can of Oofle dust on recirc. Just to make sure I got it all.
That's just me though.
