    Noticed the Aircon smelt a bit off. Thought it might be a filter or something.
    Poked around under the glovebox on the passenger side inside the car.
    Noticed a green coolant leak.
    Have no idea where it’s coming from but it’s affecting the aircon smell.
    Anyone know the location of the leak or if it’s a home fix?

    I not super familiar with Subaru, but it's almost certainly the heater core. That is the typical location for most cars.

    thanks for the advice. I wanted a little advice before I started poking randomly around under there.
    does coolant flow through the heater core? I was under the impression that the 2 were seperate
