The 17N03 program is a completely different issue. There are threads on that. This is not about carbon monoxide, which by the way is odourless. This has to do with something in the vents causing a bad smell.There is currently a special coverage for this issue. Check it out. I have a 2014 and Ford is paying for the repairs.

What does it smell like?I am trying to get rid of smell when using heat and floor vent, I suspect there is something around heater core towards the floor vent
I saw some videos people use kool it foam cleaner on car though drain hose by going to the bottom of the car, or going through blower motor, or through vent.
I tried to go under the car but found not doable at home as cannot go under without lifting the car
I tried blower motor but found not able to insert the tube from blower motor fin, the filter opening is too small
I then removed the centre vent/ audio so I can have proper access to front vent. When I use foam cleaner through it , and rinse with water in syringe I notice water dripping under the car , I assume it comes out from drain hose.
However I am not sure if the foam got into all the spots in evaporator or heater core, as the smell still there when I turn on heat.
