White Flakes when using Defrost?
 
I have been getting white flakes coming out of my dash air ducts when using the Defrost.

I've thought it could be due to the previous owner being a smoker (not sure if they were just guessing). But also thought maybe the filter for that was breaking down.

Has anyone else experienced this before???

If so where is there a filter to change for the Defrost or A/C in the vehicle

There isn't much but just wondering what it could be???

:4-dontknow:??????????????? never heard of that before. How big are the flakes. Had something like that from my hot water tank(house) break down deposits in plastic tubing.Never had this happen to me in a viehicle. Best of luck. Hopefully someone has here on the site.
