filter question

I know TJ does not have a cabin filter, however there has been some filter crap coming from vents. Its black and would only catch larger particles. Any ideas?

Furthermore, I am very allergic to seasonal crap. This year has been worse than ever. Yesterday I got in Jeep after being away about 10 days. 5 Min later my eyes were itching and swelling like crazy. I know driver door leaks sometimes and I need a new cover but has anyone ever had problem with mold growing in carpet???? I pulled out driver side today and it was damp on bottom. I think either pollen had collected in cowl and blew in my face all at once or carpet grew mold in my stay. idk

You might me looking at the Hvac housing foam gasket (similar to the ones used in front door home applications) that might be coming apart and flying out of your vents.

IDK. I have never seen this kind of material used as a gasket. I wouldn't think it is dense enough but IDK. I have seen this kind of stuff used as a filter to catch larger particles around a fan though. Below is pic of a filter for a fan that goes in a stereo cabinet

The carpets are treated with a chemical during manufacturing to stop mold and mildew.

Yea I read that but i think maybe with age of my Jeep and dirt etc, I believe I am going to replace just to be on safe side. I have had lots of allergy problems here in the South.

I am concerned about that gasket stuff though. I know I have to add some refrigerant to system about twice a year. That may be the problem. hmmmmm Thanks guys
