please help. animal died in cowel of new xc90. cleaned up mess, but some body fluid (yucK) must have leaked into air intake for ventilation system, since vent is really horribly stinky. anyone know where the cabin air filter is so I can remove tonight so wife does not have nervous breakdown? (really is that stinky)

Under the glove box there is a panel that is attached with 2 torx fasteners. The cabin filter(s) are accessible after removing this panel.

thanks for the advice. the air filter actually seems fine. I obtained some specialty "professional" deodorizer for organic odors and cleaned the heck out of the cowl. Most of the odor is gone, and I am hoping in a couple of days the rest will dissipate.
