How to clean aircon filter ?

I need to clean the aircon filter as it just plain stinks when the aircon is on nowadays.

I don't feel like driving 60 miles to the Subaru dealer and the manual doesn't say where the damn pollenfilter is located bar "you should visit the official Subaru dealer". :x

Can anybody tell me how I can get the thing cleaned ? Where is it located ? (I've seen a big fan in the passenger footwell, but it doesn't look like the place where somebody would have fitted a pollenfilter).

I know there are some products I can introduce into the system to kill bacteria. Via where should I get that into the system ?

Many thanks !!

I used to use some stuff at my old work which was basically an aerosol disinfectant with a really long tube on the nozzle. We used to locate the air con drain pipe, remove this and then shove the treatment tube as far into the car as poss and then spray the full can into the car whilst slowly pulling the tube out.
