How do you clean out the drainage hose? I keep reading that this is the problem but I don't know how to go about doing it. Does anyone have a website with a guide to it?

My AC is fine, until I turn it off at a light (engine at idle).

Within 10 - 15 seconds, the interior begins to smell like well Sheep Dog!

You can find the drainage hose if you remove the tray below boardcomputer (remove the BC also for a better view). When you look just in that 'hole' you can see a little tiny rubber hose. It is goes down from the heaterunit, then 1 - 1.5 inch to the left and last it goes down through the floor. Let me know if you found it!
