Default Cowl Vents

So under the passenger cowl vent there was a black screen or something in my 86 and I was just curious what itís used for and if I need to put it back in?

If you mean its like flyscreen, then thats been put in custom to make sure no leaves get in. If you mean a solid plastic part with like a little funnel looking piece, thats to divert water away from your fresh air intake side.

i put screen under mine for that very reason. the mess inside the AC evap box was hideous. the screen stops that from ever happening again.
