Ok so I was sure where to put this but i thought it would fall under the interior category cause its something to do with my vents. However, if its not that then it could be my engine?
Its officially the first day of school and well around here its cold enough you need to turn the heat on and such. So today I started my car, and it looked like Domo-kun was in the vents and decided to throw brown chunks of something at me. This is the first time the heat has actually been used on the car cause the person I purchased it from only drove during the summer time.I should add that the AC never did this and i've ran it plenty of times without things flying out at me.I had the windows up too so i ruled out pranks and that sort. So I am lost on what is going on here. How can i get this to stop? Should I clean out the vents and run the heat for a bit. Or am I totally going about this the wrong way. :? I sure hope there isn't rabbit in there......lol

There's a load of foam in there somewhere, I can't remember quite what it is doing :)
My friend did this in her 5, the passenger nudged something under the dashboard and bits of foam came out of the vents :/

Gremlins at work, we bought a $100 car to mess about with and wrecked, i turned the heater fan on full and it sprayed black stuff all over the car got in our eyes etc, we ended up on some grass by the side of the road lol

how about just leaving it on till it all blows out?

Yeah, it's deteriorated foam. When you turned the heater on, you moved one or more slider or knob controls, which moved the flappers inside around. This put into position the condition for the foam to get blown around.

It'll eventually stop, but it is a pain, I know.

Will, you really are starting to act like a member of HT or something.

Why must you post stuff like this, seemingly starting an argument or debate? This is just one example. Your flippant, glib remarks and flagrant use of profanity is growing tiresome.

Mine started spitting foam out a while back... From time to time, usually after driving on a rough road, I'll get a few small pieces thrown out of the vents. Seems like if I have the slider on the defrost it throws more out than if its on the vent setting...
