When I changed my cabin air filter on a 2013 Elantra gt I found a dozen acorn
shell on it. How can a rodent bring them in there?

they can squeeze thru the tiniest holes.

I know the animal can squeeze thru the small revise but how does it get the acorns thru?

They put the acorns in their cheeks and they enter through the fresh air intake. Lots of room to them to get in.

Inlets are everywhere, the cowl, inner fenders, even the cowl drains are accessible to rodents. I went to a big park one day and spent all day just walking around and when i got back to my rig it wouldn't run and sounded funny cranking over so I opened the hood and checked things over, found the squirrels had totally filled the intake air box with nuts, pine needles and piece of my air filter, fortunately nothing got through into the engine, after clearing it all out it started and i headed to a parts store for a new filter. So you may want to look underneath for some missing body plugs and check the cowl drains as they can also pop out.
