Early 944 - Where is the Fresh Air Inlet vent?

I am looking to deodorize my 944 and am trying to locate this vent?

Can someone tell me where to look. I was thinking the fan located on the rain tray but want to be 100% sure before I spray there.

Open the hood. It's at the base of the windshield in the middle of the cowl. I'm pretty sure it's what you've described.

Check for a water leak under the battery. Fix what you find. Clean the carpets.

LOL, well my friend's '83 still smells now like the 85.5 I rode in when I was 8yrs old.

Maybe I should swap vents and blower fan

Jack up the radiator cap and drive a 968 under it.

Actually the biggest smeller is the A/C evaperator. Needs to be cleaned as well as the drain line cleaned.

Pull the covers off of it. Clean the drain line. Spray it down and rinse. Make sure the drain line is clear.
