Dead mouse in heater

This is so stupid I am afraid to post.

But it's happening in my wife's civic and I am more afraid of her.


There was a stink in the civic earlier this year. I took the blower motor out and found a mouse nest in the fan. Complete with dead baby mouses.

I took out what I could find and cleaned up the fan.

But the stink still persists.

Any ideas?

Do I need to take the dash apart?

Yeah I've seen this a few times. It's sucks.

Go to NAPA ask for deodorant for your heater/ac vents. It's an aerosol can designed to eliminate odours throughout your heater system.

I would say it might be best to strip it down to inspect and clean it up. If for anything just for piece of mind. Just think about air quality, masking it with deoderant won't get rid of rotting flesh and the havoc it's doing to the quality of the air.
