I had my truck in 4 times for the same issue. It was covered the first 2 times under the bumper to bumper and then the 3rd time it was covered under the Ford extended warranty. The fourth time it was covered under Ford but they replaced the entire air conditioning system including all the lines, etc. The field enginner for Ford said the system was "contaminated" thus causing the part to fail. I still think it is something directly with the evaporator. To be honest with you I would buy a Silverado or even a RAM. That is what I am looking at right now. I always liked Ford but after this headache and the lack of attention to this matter and root cause for 4 years has steered me away from purchasing another one.

Looks like this is a very common problem, pretty sad that all these trucks are just a few years old too....

2013 Expy Limited w/ 45K and was just diagnosed with a leaking evaporator core by an independent mechanic. Started with a strange smell and then the A/C would no longer blow cold. Waiting to hear how much its going to cost to fix, but looking like its not going to be cheap based on what I have read here.

2013 f150 eb AC odor just started

I have 61k miles on my 2013 F150 EB Lariat and the nasty AC smell just started. I do not have the esp. Has Ford fessed up to the problem or are we on our own to pay for this?

PM means private message. You should never post this information in a public forum, I'd advise you to edit your posts.

Also, FordService has not been responsive in these forums for quite a while now. I don't know what their problem is.

Band aid chemical smell

I Have a 2013 Raptor, cant even drive it anymore because of the smell in air conditioner. North County Ford rep in vista ca., said "kind of smells lime band aids". Today is my second time going in. I asked them to replace the entire condenser and blower unit as that is the only portion of air that's not a closed system. We will see. Now only pass side is working for either heat or air. Drivers side only blowing air. Edge just did that too. Needed an upgrade of some sort as the actuators malfunctioned and temp control no longer worked.

Evaporator band aid smell

A number of you have provided detailed service reports as well as other information that will be useful toward resolving this issue. Crystal from Ford Service appears to be sincere about helping; however, keep n mind she is just here to facilitate information. I have yet to receive a call from the Ford regional manager for my area. This entire part issue is very bad quality control on FMC's part. Any of you who have service reports or other information regarding this issue, please PM me so I can added it to the file.
I too have this issue, and am on my 2nd visit. First time the tech wrote No smell. This time I requested collector and blower replacement as they seem to be the only portion of system that is not closed. I have a 2013 Raptor. Same problem.

2013 FX4 F150 with 108k

I had the vinegar smell for a long time. Which I understand is mold. I live in houston so I run the A/C on max most of the year. I now have the band aid smell. I"m out of warranty so I'll be replacing the evap core myself I suppose :-(

Has anyone tried an aftermarket evap core?
