You have to remove the heater unit try to get the hose of your dustmachine as far as posible in the hole you may try this at both ends to get the rotting air out your car buy some car deoderant or a toilet deoderant block under the heater unit if there is a space for it you may have to fix it to hold it on its place just before the main hole i hope this something to try out.

Get into air ducts


Wow, apparently this problem is more common than I thought! Some say in the future, the best way to avoid this is to always close your fresh air vents when you park your car.

It is possible that your cabin air filter needs changed. Look in your car manual or on YouTube.com for its location.

If the rodent is stuck in your blower motor, you can remove the blower motor as there are bolts that are around the cover of the blower motor the blower motor is on the fire wall. I hope this helps.

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.

I have 1992 honda accord lx 4 cyl. Something died in my air conditioner ducting. How do I get it out?


You got to get in there and remove that dead mouse or it's gonna smell like that forever. Also, you gonna have to buy this commercial stuff that you put into the duct system to defunk it.

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!

My girlfriend has a 2004 Vibe AWD Recently we have noticed a smell coming from the vents like an aniaml got in the air system. However i cannot find the cabon filter "if it exsists" My 2008 vue has one....


The cabin air filter is behind the glove box usually. If you live some where that there is a lot of small ground animals, like in CA, we have damn ground squirrels. Check under the main air filter in the motor bay too, I found a dead mouse in one so I would check both.

Auto zone sells stuff that you can buy if its just mold in the vent housings and in the air ducts. you have yo run the heater on hot and high to ge the moisture out then after you run it for 15-20 min spray the mildew killer in to it. .....Best of Irish luck to you on that one, it took me a month to find that mouse.

That air duct is much too new to fail on its own. Sounds like you might have a mouse living in the duct work - blocking the vents. Have you looked at the cabin filter compartment? Strange smells? How does the heat work?

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.
