The smell is likely mold built up in the a/c vent system. I believe there is a spray that you can get at parts store and follow directions to apply. Recommend getting several estimates for the pinion gear and bearing repair and compare apples to apples. Did the shop that told you what was wrong give you an estimate? Alot of times teardown is required to give complete estimate.
