We've recently found a mouse in the cabin air filter in our 2007 Sonata. We were able to find and replace the filter without a problem, but would obviously like to prevent it from happening again.
We tried looking for the intake for the cabin, in the hopes that we could perhaps secure a piece of screen over it to deter any future critters from making their way back up there. Unfortunately we were unable to find it - any ideas as to the location or suggestion how to avoid this problem in the future?

For 2007 Audi A6 depending on the engine type, there are two placements for cabin air filters: 1. The cabin air filters are placed on the right bottom side of the central console - passenger side, for 2007 Audi A6 Avant. Remove the carpet and behind the plastic cover are cabin filters. When installing new filters see for the correct position - air flow is indicated by an arrow. See pictures below:
2. For the second placement, besides you need to remove the glove box for access and replace cabin air filters. Check first your car situation. If you will give me your e-mail address, I will send you photos with cabin filters replacement for 2007 Audi A6, because the www.fixya.com website is limited to 150 kb traffic.
To change the cabin air filter one needs to remove the glove box first. This is reasonably simple and involves a couple of screws, the rubber glove box limit pads, and a 10mm nut. The air filter is located in the heater assembly directly behind the glove box. The filter is removed by releasing the plastic clip holding the filter and withdrawing the filter forwards. (The filter is installed like a vertical drawer.)
Can you specify if you are referring to the engine intake air filter or the cabin air filter?
If you are referencing the cabin air filter, the attached youtube video should help.
I originally created the video for the Odyssey, but found out after looking at my dad's CRV that it is essentially the same procedure as the Odyssey, and have also noticed that the same stands true for most Honda vehicles built between 2005 and 2009.
