Hi I have the air freshener that screws in to dash just below top screen. Any tips on refiling it ,or purchasing original. Any help would be appreciated.

Do not bother, not worth money. Use a normal car air fresher.

You can get the refill sticks from dealers or I suspect Ebay. Not cheap though.

If you take the device out and pull it apart - pull twist and wiggle, no tools needed - you get to a sort of fibrous 'stick'. If you stand that in a little jar with about 1 cm of something smelly and spirit based (someone gave me some woodland after shave a few years back, never use after shave - does anybody these days? - , put lid on, leave for an hour it absorbs up the stem, reassemble. Lasted 4-6 weeks.

But is it worth the bother? I'm sure they were only invented to give us a reason to keep coming back to dealer and be tempted by shiny new things. After the first 2 goes I got bored. Better to be un-smelly than to mask smell.

Do as Richard says, but if you get a bottle of refill oil for reed diffusers, (that's the stinky stuff that you put a bunch of sticks in), you could use that to replenish the car one. Amazon seems to be the cheapest.
