I'm looking for the thread I seen a few years ago about how someone used some type of screen so leaves and debris don't get down inside

I take 1/4" box wire galvanized and cut a shape that goes inside the plastic screens. I use small wire ties to attach and also spray the wire flat black and you would not see it if you didn't look for it. I also put a piece between the cowl and the heater box to keep any critters that might go in through the drains on each side.

I had one snake skin in the cowl guess it kept the mice out.

a couple of well placed zip ties will also help to keep warped vents sitting flat in their recesses too.
