    Thanks to this here forum I’ve learned a good few things.

    This week has been the cause of why my car misted up like a Turkish bath after driving through a puddle that turned into a much deeper puddle than expected. The air intake for the cabin filter is fairly low down on a VW Passat B6 so the rancid puddle water flooded the pollen filter and soaked the passenger footwell. I’ve removed the absolute minging filter and the footwell is now home to a bag of silicone cat litter. I’m going to have to get the carpet cleaned because it stinks like a stagnant cesspool.

    Anyone with any gems picked up on here?
