Hi,<p>Is it safe to use air condition cleaners in a Volvo S40? namely CRC airco cleaner.<p>The weather is finally improving and temperatures are rising, so i tested my A/C today to test it, a an awful stincky smell got blown in my face as i did, so i went out and bought a new pollen filter and the CRC airco cleaner, which is a foam.<p>Is it safe to spray it in the vents, the poolen filter compartment and the evaporator? what if it comes in contact with a sensor or something? can it damage any electrical part? Has anybody else done this before?<p>p.s. still struggling with the accelerator pedal nuts, can't reach the upper two with the tools i have to free the pollen filter, but that's a different story... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

I bought a set of deep sockets for the nuts. Did you see the writeup for the filter change? It's linked in the forum sticky. Buy new non-lock nuts to put back on there, you'll be glad next time, plus it goes back together easier this time.

Re: (mattdoc)

Yes i've seen the write up many times before, my main concern was that CRC cleaning foam, i decided to risk and go for it anyway spraying the foam in every air vent and cavity, it did drip on the light switch from the left vent and on some connectors under the steering wheel, so i left them to dry and no harm done, everything works as usual.<p>I had to buy those deep sockets and an elbow wrench and it was all smooth from there <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> i kept the bottom lock nut as is coz it's easy to accsess, but i changed the upper two for non-locks<p>That old filter had so much dirt in it that it was blocking the air ventilation, so glad i changed it, and the stinck is gone too! <br>Charcoal cabin filter 40€ = 54$<br>CRC cleaner 12€ = 16$<br>deep scokets 25€ = 33$<br>Clean air with a fresh sent of lime = priceless <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
