AC on Internal Circulation yet can smell smoke
I am having a peculiar problem with my Accent. I have noticed that eventhough I keep the AC vent knob closed and on internal circulation, I can still smell external smoke (when in heavy traffic) leaking into the car cabin. What could be the problem?

check the circulation system, it might not be closing fully.
For manual system which if i remember is what accent has..
1. move to exhaust position and move back to re-circulation mode in one fast move, if you hear a mild thud its fine.
2. if the smell persist see if you can trace the flap by following the cable and manually move the flap fully.
3. If not you will have to get to a decent ac mech or workshop.
4. Still smell persist, do a chek of engine bay for any missing rubber gromets which is letting the air in.

Eventhough the mode may be in recirculation mode , if there is any strong smell outside ....like tannery etc the smell will come inside in any car except for those expensive cars and nothing much can be done for this
