The only way to get it really clean is to remove the entire heater box and disassemble it then clean everything with Lysol disinfectant, let it sit overnight then wipe it all off with a wet cloth, then reassemble. However you can try using compressed air and try blowing down the defroster and vents to see if you can get anything out that way, if they didn't pack it too tight it may work but you will still have the smell. Good Luck.

thanks... whats the easiest way to remove the heater box?

It's not easy, the dash has to come out first, then the heater assembly.
