All of 1Z products have the same smell. If you didn't like it, I would stay awya.

I have never tried their wiper fluid stuff, but the cockpit stuff smells nice to me.

More like dish soap lemony scent, or the Clorox kind of lemon scent, not a "stinging" kind of smell.

It will be gone in a week tops

Definitely need to do this soon. Weird thing is the stanky smell is only noticeable during humid days (w/ cold mornings).

Nice. The klima seems to be the best at actually getting rid of the gunk, not just covering it up with a smell. And the way I've got it laid out, you get direct access to the evap fins, so it's a pretty fool proof procedure

im confused on the xterra job after tonights inspection. got my set of supplies. so i remove the cabin air flter and can't see jack, its BEHIND the glove box. (which i removed). so then i removed the blower motor to look around. i do see a radiator to the left in the ducting. but, im not sure if its the heater core or the evaporator, and how i even tell. i think it would do nothing for the A/C if i accidentally sprayed the heater core instead. so i have to research this tonight on newx.org forums..

looks like the unit close to the blower motor is indeed the evaporator. sweet.





and this makes it 100% positive. thats the evaporator.

Where did you purchase the Klima-cleaner? I am trying to order but it is difficult to find the Professional.

Also is there a difference in the pro, that you used, or the ETU(easy-to-use)? I can find ETU very easily but since you used the pro I would like to get the same one.
