Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system. Our technicians tell us a cleaner is available for the heater case. Also, the drain system should be checked for debris.Google+

Volkswagen Touareg Problem

It has not been fixed... I'm glad I found this. They changed the filter and it went away but than it came back a little bit after that.

Horribly musty, "bad rag" odor coming from vents when turning on AC. It doesn't seem to stink when I use the heater, just the AC. It's awful.
