Don't know anything about your car, but I would guess its over 10 years old and the foam seams in the HCAV duct are crumbling away. Once they all blow out, the problem goes away.

I recall reading that there's a flapper that has foam on it. I think there was also a way of dealing with it. Search... You might try RennTech too.

try this:

renntech.org/forums/index.php/topic/18769-aircon-sponge-problem

or

tinyurl.com/4879r9g

(you may have to put the www back in front on your browser but at least it doesn't have all the faux url stuff...

Most of the links mentioned about this on RennTech are broken or just give baby pictures.

This link has a pdf with the repair procedure at the beginning on the thread:

or in case you can't get into RennTech:
