An odd smell coming from your air conditioner could be a sign that it needs attention. It could be that your A/C emits a strange odor in your face. You could have a damp or dirty cabin filter or a blocked drain from your evaporator.
The refrigerant flows then through high-pressure cables to the condenser. The condenser works in the same way as a radiator and introduces the liquid inside the vehicle to fresh air. This is used to absorb heat. The liquid then flows into the expansion tube or orifice tub, where it becomes gaseous and enters the low-pressure part of the A/C system.

There are two options available to you if you suspect your A/C is leaking. You can use black light-enabled drugs. Many refrigerants are mixed in with UV dyes which allows them to shine under a blacklight. You can also use the "sniffer", a special device that can pinpoint the chemical compounds of the refrigerant and detect leaks. Ask your service technician for more information about these options.
To change a cabin's air filter, first, remove the glovebox and then open the glove container. Cover the floor mat with a plastic bag and wear safety gloves. Once you have removed your glove box, remove the old filter. Place it in a plastic bag. If the vehicle is a Toyota you can get a new cabin filter using genuine OEM parts. This will allow for maximum performance, durability, and fit and it will not affect your vehicle's warranty.
The cabin filter is an integral part of the car's HVAC system. It captures pollutants and allows cool or warm air through the car to keep it clean. It needs to be changed if it becomes clogged. To replace a cabin air filter that has become clogged, it will cost anywhere from $70 up to $100. Parts and labor will run you from $40 to $70.
