Hi! Try to blow them out using compressed air +-5 bar through heater vents, close the remaining vents and blow each one from the top down. Follow each vent duct to the heater box to see if anything came loose. Another solution is removing heater ducts starting at the heater box, use a thin brazing/weldinng wire with one end bent in a u shape, pushing it into the ducts. Happy hunting. Also check the inside of the heater box using a flash light. This might require some removal of console and facia panels located close to foot conrtols brake/clutch and accellorater pedals.
Regards
Phillip

Smelled petrol in car, car do not want to switch on no lights going on


Check all gas lines from your gas tank to the carburetor and see if there are damp spots and if you see any damp spots take your finger and wipe the damp spot and smell. If it smells like gas there probably is a slight leak. even a moist spot of gas will smell big time.
Check all around your gas tank as well. A question i have do you have a clean air filter. If not it might be choking itself to *****.**

Burning plastic smell from under hood


You will need to check where the liquid is coming from, It may be anything from Air Con, Fuel, Transmission Fluid etc..

The fact you smell burning plastic could be 3 things..

1, Brake pads could smell and burn down if they are on too tight (Had this problem with a trailer). Hence when you apply the brakes it could be squirting brake fluid out due to too much pressure.
- Check brake fluid

2, If the smell and liquid is inside the car (front pass side) it could be the air ducts. Under the dashboard you have air ducts etc for the fans and in car cooling (brother had issue with this)

3, Whatever the fluid is, it could possibly drip onto something hot, unusual for liquid to smell like plastic though, Auto transmission oil smells like fish.

Best bet would be the brakes. Next time you smell it just smell in the wheel mag and see if you can smell it, check the engine fluids often and dont use A/C (Air Con) as that does drip fluid (normal). If it is the brakes smelling you will need to have the lines bled out, tyre places may be able to do this, and possibly new brake pads

Good luck

Dead mouse smell and nest in dashboard how to find it?


I've seen this before. Mice. if small enough enter from the outside into the air intake and get into the fan and motor. The least fix is to remove the fan and motor assy. the worst is you will have to have a qualified technician remove the whole dash assembly.

When I turn on the fan past the 3 speed it sounds like a low,loud, growling sound like it has airplane engines turning on. I also smelled a fowl odor in side my car, my husband thinks a field mouse is in...


It's very possible that a mouse has gotten into the duct work and ended up trapped inside the blower motor fan. The now dead mouse would cause the blower fan to be out of balance & wobble considerably and make noise plus it would smell quite a bit. I see a handfull of dead mice in blower motor fans each year so it's not all that uncommon. The fix is to remove the blower motor and clean out all the debris. Most of the time the blower and fan are fine and can be reinstalled once they are cleaned up. Hope this helps you find your problem!

AC smells like urine and light is blinking; How did you or do you fix it?


There are air conditioned duct sanitizers available in the automotive departments of the big stores. Just spray it in and wait a few minutes before you turn it on. Bacteria, dust and moisture in the ductwork makes them smell this way.

Water leaking into footwell drivers side of suzuki liana, seems to be coming from the right side of the windscreen,is there and if there is a blocked drainage hole would that filter into the foot well,...


Yes, the plastic caps at the bottom of the footwell, are for drainage. (Don't forget to replace them. You may not be pleased with yourself, if you don't, on a real rainy day!)

Does the water have a real nasty smell, and the inner windshield has a film on the inside? If so, then you have a heater core leak, and it's antifreeze.

If not, your air conditioning drain duct is plugged, and needs to be cleaned out. I also suggest a real weak solution of bleach and water, to be applied in this area, to kill any mildew that might form. (Unless you are allergic to bleach. If so, you may want to try an alternative. Mildew is bad for your respiratory system)
