The car in question is a 2011 3 hatch six speed. It has a little under 20K on it. I've started to notice that whenever I use the defroster it gives off a bad smell. It is a musty kinda smell. I only get this smell with I'm using the defroster, whether it's the windshield only option or the windshield and foot option. Any ideas as to the case of this? Could it be my cabin air filter? Thanks in advance.

Well i took out my cabin air filter and it was kind of nasty. It was black and had some small leaves in it. Replaced it with a new OEM one and all seems or rather smells good.
