AC Vent Question
Hey Folks -

I have a question... I've owned my '98 ZJ now for about a year. One of the last things which I've needed to fix was my AC. I took it to my local repair shop, and come to find out - all it needed was a charge, supposedly the system had no leaks etc...

So now -

The good: It's cold enough for penguins inside this truck...

The Bad: Every time I turn on the AC, I get a cloud of dust and some sort of crap coming out of the vents! :drool: I mean it's literally raining crap all over the truck. I run it for a bit and it goes away until the next time I come out and turn on the AC... and then we have the dust bomb again!

The air filter and housing are all clean (I replaced it about 5k ago).

Any thoughts? Do the ZJ's have a cabin air filter separate from the one on the engine? The previous owner was a chain smoking slob, and it's taken me just about the whole year to get the damned thing back to as close as factory spotless as I can for a 13 year old truck...

I agree... but was hoping not to have to-do that....

I take it there's no in-cabin filter that would just cure this?

The zj has no cabin air filter stock, give me 5 minutes and I'll see about wrangling down the write up on a custom one.

The mesh you see next to the wipers, that's where the cabin air comes through, that's about as fine a filtering as you get stock.

Edit: Linkie.

The time now is 12:13 PM.
