then where does the cabin air come from? is it a direct feed from the exterior or does it recirculate the cabin air in a closed system?

i believe it pulls air from outside through the cowl just under your windshield, i suspect this because i had some long pine needles work their way in there into the blower fan and they made noise on the fan blades.

there's probably just a screen or something no actual filter or anything
