But it will not go away!
I had an odd smell in my Mk2 for a while, it turned out to come from the pollen filter. I have no idea why or what but changing the filter stopped it.

As well as all the above suggestions check also you haven't got the ventilation control set to only recirculate the air in the car - I can't remember its official name! Had this on a previous car with aircon when set to recirculate. Smelt of wet spaniel.
Try going for a drive on your own. If the smell has gone then have another word with the dog!
If the smell's still there then ummmmm....errrr...it must be something else..... :whistle:

Place a bowl of vinegar on the floor overnight to neutralize any lingering smell, remember to remove the bowl next day !! Hopefully it's just a one-off.

Despite me emptying and now refilling the washer fluid the whiff still remains, although it is now less pungent.
Perhaps this is a possibility for your malodorous vehicle? :SI
read somewhere on t'internet that someone had similar problem and it was due to a small fieldmouse getting into the washer fluid reservoir somehow.Weird but True ( allegedly )
