[DML] Re: fresh air hole under windshield cowl -- is it just a hole?

Back in 2002 I remember Knut G. and Hank Breer mentioning "Part number 101957 is indicated in section 7.1.2 of the parts manual and it's item number 36 in the figure". I also remember someone mentioning using half of a zip disc case instead of ordering the $10 part - to deflect any water from dripping down on the top of the fuel pump.

Placing a window screen under the cowl may also help reduce junk & small leaves from getting in there.
See "Windshield Intake Screen" here:

        What is the usual arrangement for the fresh-air hole underneath the
        windshield cowl? Mine is just a big gaping hole, which means that I can
        get leaves, pine needles, bugs, and lots of water into my HVAC system.
        (I had over an inch of water accumulate in the footwells on the way to
        and from Gettysburg, and more sloshing over my feet with every hard turn.)

        I managed to put a thin piece of aluminum flashing over the hole, but
        even though it's convex and therefore has open spaces on either end, it
        doesn't allow *enough* fresh air in at once to get good air flow into
        the air conditioning on "normal" -- "max" is, of course, fine.

        Is there a missing screen or other such arrangement? I've seen no such
        thing in the parts manual, but I also know that the manual is missing
        many items.

        On the other hand, if the rat-sized hole is standard and any of you have
        devised a way of reducing intrusion of things apart from air, I'd
        appreciate if you shared your secret with me. My DeLorean lives outside,
        and I do occasionally have to drive it in the rain, but I also like to
        use the air conditioning on "normal."

        Thanks in advance!
