I don't believe the 1993 model has a cabin filter. There is not one listed at RockAuto for it either.

well then if my air is smelling like mold how do i fix that?

Well, it could be a couple of things. The first would be to check the condensation drain for the evaporator core. This is the drain that usually drips water under the car when the A/C is on. This will generally be a hose connected to the evaporator ducting in the passenger floorboard behind the glove box. You will want to make sure this isn't plugged.

We used to get the mold smell complaint from time to time when I was a Ford tech. Thing is, the evaporator itself can begin to smell like mold even if all is draining well. We had a kit issued by Ford which was nothing more than a spray that would kill mold and was used by spraying it into the interior air supply under the dash. We would set the system to recirculate with the system set to full cold and the compressor unplugged, and then spray the solution into the air intake under the dash on the passenger side. We would unplug the compressor under the hood so the evaporator would stay dry except for the solution being sprayed through it. With an import though, you probably have an "A/C" button on the dash to disengage the compressor so that you don't have to disconnect the power to the compressor clutch. You could also use a recirculation/vent mode if available. After spraying it, we would shut it all down and let it sit for a period of time to do its thing.

Without access to a specific solution, I might try something like Lysol through the evaporator although I would look for an unscented version.
