Bad smell from ac/heat/circulation

Hello all!

I have not used my heat/ac/or anything that makes air movement in my 1999 WJ for a while.

I used my climate control today to just let some outside air flow into my car, but there was this unpleasant odor.

What is causing this smell and how can I fix it?

(My guess is the bad cabin air filter? Does WJ even have a cabin air filter? I have never ever seen one before!)

Thank you so much for your input!

So, Is that considered preventative maintainence for this? or do I just wait until it starts to smell (again)? I had the condenser replaced a couple years ago and I dont want to do it again...
