Volkswagen Touareg Odor from HVAC vents

(18 reports)

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.

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. -
