Snow inside (blower)

Does anyone else when driving in the snow without the heat on (not that mine is even warm..) get snow blown through the system?

I flipped on the front vents and mine was blowing snow inside.. Normal?

Mine does this also, I have a 97 Tj. I really only notice it when it has snowed and accumulated on the hood. When I turn the heater on its as if sucks the snow through the vents.

I had a 64 Mercury that would do that. I wonder if that's why they downsized the cowl vent?

Cabin air filters prevent snow or dust or dirt from going in from your vents, most modern (if not all) have them.
You could modify one to fit the intake for the cabin air...

Hmm,. So you guys think my air box is messed up? Or normal for a 97..

My heat is shit and I've replaced about everything but the air box system,

Literally my whole coolant system, and still awful heat

I don't know where the air comes from to get into the cabin, but it's not the same place as the engine air intake.

I think it's straight from the cowl...
