I have been using the air con since we have had the car, just over 12 months old now.
The fishy smell has started when the air con is switched on.
Nissan are asking £29 I think they said.
Does anyone know if they just bomb it, or replace any filters as well.
Also the other thing, has anyone had this after owning for such a short time, even though the air con has been used through the winter (at periods) to keep it going...so I thought.

Is your water drain blocked? When your ac is running you should see water dripping out underneath as it takes out moisture from the air.
If it smells bad something may be stuck behind the dash and harbouring bacteria.
Just spraying a cleaner in may help for a short while but you need to find the cause.

29 pound isn't bad if it's including a regas and topup etc.. I have my own business and we do car air conditioning and I charge 45 for a full Aircon service.. And the anti bacterial treatment is £15 so nissan must have a good offer on or there charging 29 to get rid of the smell

Thanks for that.
water does drip ok, they have had the dash out for rattles, so what might they have trapped. just so I can mention it to them.

When I asked the service front desk they said that they think it is just a bomb.

Just booked my car in for a service and asked them to do the Aircon service at the same time...
Its never been done since we've had it, and its now 8 years old and blowing out tepid air!!
They want £49!!
No discount for getting it done whilst they have it - disappointing! And it doesn't include the Antibacterial clean either - tight gits!
