Default Musty aircon odor?

I noticed that whenever I turn on the aircon, a whiff of musty smelling air would come out. Anyone have ideas on how to remove the bad odor?

Maybe clean the vents out? Get a dryer vent cleaning brush, pull of your vent covers, and run the brush down the vents. IDK

Pull out your pollen filter and spray a little Febreeze on it. See if that helps with the odors.

Audi is actually aware of this issue. Has to do with water driping on something from short drives whenAC is on.. blah blah blah so it gets a bad musty odor.

Im pretty sure this only happens on 02 + A4's.
