AU Auto Mechanic: camerontech, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago

i have removed several dead animals out of airboxes before. mice, rats, and they always seem to end up at the cabin air filter.

they have always been there

if your lucky they will be on the filter and slide right out.

if not, remove the blower motor and inspect there.

if they're not in those places than you will have to remove the hvac box unfortunatley.

you will probably never find out how they got in , so i wouldnt be to concerned about how they got in.

they only need a hole the size of a dime to squeeze their heads in.

let me know if you need any more help and id be happy to assist!

thanks and i appreciate positive ratings!
