Question about 2003 Hyundai Accent

Animal ripping up car in garage.

I have a 1998 Nissan Altima which is garaged. Something keeps getting into the back seat of the car and ripping up the fabric seating. I thought maybe food was in the car so I had it cleaned and the same thing happened again. What can I do keep this from continually happening?

Wash the floor with a vinegar and water mix. Mice travel their previous path by the ammonia trail they leave behind, from urine. The vinegar will neutralize the ammonia and they won't know where they were. You can try making a trail to a specific area and set some traps there.

Heard of mouse/rat traps? Put some around the car and get rid of those buggers! If they begin to nest in your dash, heater, or under your hood, it can cost you tons, and can even cause a fire! (they will chew the insulation off the wires)
If you like animals, you need to decide if it's worth having your car destroyed to not do them in!!

May be the fabric is made up of leather.This attracts the animals.you will do to keep the car in a fully closed garage or change the seats of the car.

Nothing... This is probably a field mouse/rat. The best thing to do is set traps. They are looking for food and nesting places/material. If you dont resolve this soon you will have a breeding ground for rodents. There are very small holes on almost every car but should not be able to enter the cabin without the doors/window being open or a hole in the trunk. check the car and look for points of access or dropping trailes...

Could be a number of issues! To be sure you need to get the engine codes read! Take to a garage who can check the codes and this should indicate where the problem is!

How do you know when the fuel pump is out?


Disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter and have someone turn the key to the on position(not start) Have a container ready to catch fuel.If you get fuel then you may have to get the pressure checked at a garage to make sure the PSI is right on the fuel rail. Changing the pump is done by taking out the back seat.one to two hours

Animals keep chewing up the gas tank and fuel pump on my 1998 mazda pickup. I've sprayed rodent repellent over the tank and put the truck in a garage and they still get it. What else can I do?


This is a very odd situation. Actually I have never heard of such a thing happening. Are you sure it is rodents doing this? Ask yourself why they are attacking your truck. Is there something that is drawing them to your truck? Is there a dead animal under there somewhere? How are they getting in your garage? Something is just not right here.

I have a 1998 Nissan Altima. Lately, some animal has ripped holes into the fabric back seat and gotten into the car. I think it must be coming in under the car but I don't know how. How can I stop this...


Be careful... the rodent may be "nesting" in the trunk (seriously).

One access hole (supposed to be plugged) is in the trunk, under the spare tire. Look in the lowest part of the trunk, there is a hole with maybe the cover loose. The hole is approximately the size of a dollar bill folded in half. It is a "drain" plug if the trunk gets water in it.

If not there, then it may be under the back seat ... again, use caution when you remove the back seat.

Look for signs of its nest. Use a rodent repellent, not a poison... you don't want it to die in an inaccessible place in your car. It will be a real stinkeroooo.

Hope this helps!

Hello , you are probably not doing anything wrong. Some garage door openers will not accept some codes. My Toyota Tundra 2005 worked on my garage door , but my 2004 F250 would not. Quinn , Arizona
