Covering Air Vent

Does anyone know if it would be a bad idea to cover the air vent near the front wind shield completely?

Quick fix to stop water from coming in to the floor boards. I also read somewhere in another post that someone also did this and it stopped the leak. I just wanted to know if there are any problems if I were to do this. Thanks

if you have a leak in the floors, try this. open up the hood and look for a hose about an inch-1.5 wide and see if its clogged up. the hose will be running from the bottom of the vent against the fire wall. take it off and remove the crud that could possibly be in there. if that doesnt work then you might have a clog under your vent near that little hole

this worked for me, so its worth a shot,

Hey thanks for the tip. Sure enough I found that hose and it was clogged with mud and leaves. Cleaned the cowl and the hose seems to be draining properly. Again thanks for the help.
