Do you all have that lid thing that goes underneath the vent on that side of the cowl? I don't really get much debris in my blower.

Remove the glove box, remove the metal plate behind the glove box, remove the 2 screws on the metal bracket that the blower resistor sits in, un plug blower resistor and remove you now have a decent sized opening to see into the evap box.

This is what my evap box looked like when I bought my current truck:



this is what my evaporator looked like when I recently replaced it, you can see all the years of crap that were on it, doesn't help in letting air flow through it:





and lastly a new (clean) vs old pic:

Another tip when servicing the blower motor fan, besides removing debris, remove the fan from the motor and clean the plastic blades really well, any dirt on the blades can effect the balance and may cause it to spin unbalanced and may also cause noise.

I might, but you can see part of it thru the cowl vent. It is literally right underneath the vent. It is a piece of black plastic. The other side does not have this.

i read somewhere that the replacement cowl covers were redesigned to avoid this problem. screen is much cheaper than new plastic covers.

I found a pic. This thing, if not sealed properly, can also cause water to leak onto the passenger floor.



You can only see part of it underneath the cowl.

Well my blower filled up with leafs against tonight I pulled the glove box and looked behind the curtain to find a box full of leafs. It took a long time but finally got the leafs out. Tomorrow I want to pull the cowl and clean up on top best I can and re install with screen and covers.
How does the cowl come off? PS is already loose and I can start to pull it up. Is it clips, screws, what?
