Why do think he died on the cabin air filter?Thats highly unlikely most of the ones I have seen were killed by the blower fan and thats were the mouse will most likely be on the blower fan wheel or close by it.

Alright let me know how it goes. Also I would get a ac duct cleaning kit the expanding foam kind. After you have found your animal.

Sure enough ther was a dead mouse decomposing on the blower wheel-I removed it cleaned out the blower well as good as I could-some residual mild oder, but I hope it will graually go away as time goes on-or I will get the AC duct cleaning kit-but thanks again for your help
