Customer Question

I have a horrible fish smell coming from my ac vents.(2015 Camaro)). Is there an exterior air intake vent somewhere where somebody could have put something to make the interior of the car smell so bad? If that is what happened what can I do to clean this
and stop the putrid air from coming through the interior vents?

hi there,

Im cam.

vents intake generally come from the upper shroud. you should smell it from the outside too.

does it smell like a dead animal possibly?

I pull dead rats and mice out of air boxes a couple of times a year.

They will always get stuck in the area around the cabin air filter.

IF you can access it easily, id recommend popping the cabin filter out and look for signs of the filter being chewed.

ITs definatley a good start to your smell.

I hope this info helps,

let me know what you find
