Customer Question

I need to remove the panel below the glove box to access my blower fan because there is a chopped up decomposing mouse in the fan. I already took the glove box out, but can't reach the fan. 2007 Subaru Outback. It smells.
JA: Are you fixing your Outback yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I saw the mouse. Just need to get to the fan to get it out.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nope.
