Not using the AC is when stuff grows on there in my experience. Plus it's not good for it to be turned off for long periods. Just leave it in auto.

And hook it up to Vida and turn on the feature where it dries the evaporator by running the fan a few minutes after the car is parked. Or nvm, just realised that might not be relevant in this forum section.
Yeah, I think that's only available on P2s. P80s don't have that feature.

Starts in the 1999 model in North America, I think it’s called after run AC blower or something like that

The air damper door right above the fan motor closed off the outside air and opens the interior ine
Thanks!
And the interior air door that is opened is located where?
Does it air in from the passenger side under dash?
I'm looking to put an ionizer next to it.

Passenger side just above your feet. Trying to remember if there is a kick plate to remove, I think there is on my 1999


Looks like I feel asleep in the middle of posting!

I knew I had a good picture from my April 2013 AC evaporator replacement

The flap pivots down to close off the interior vent to let in fresh air, and pivots up to shut off the cowl vent and allowing recirculated air.
