Smelly Passat!

3 posts in this topic

I've got a smell of rotten eggs in the car...it's not the wife and there are no rotten eggs anywhere nearby.

Could it be related to the pollen filter?

As a precautionary measure I would check under the carpets to see if you have signs of water ingress.Checking under the carpets appears to becoming common practice with passat's :)

Check that the smell isn't coming from the washer bottle. Some fluids and sometimes just contaminated water can produce an awful smell. If it is remove the whole bottle and clean internally as best you can adding some bleach to kill the bacteria causing the problem.
