Yes. Under glove box. However, I have learned how to reduce this "mold" problem. Turn-off your A/C approximately 5 minutes before arriving at your destination. Keep the fan on high during this time and open your windows. You will be drying-out any part that harbors mold due to dampness. It may smell at first, but that will go away before you're done driving. When you restart, the "mold" smell should be less evident!
