How do I stop mice from entering my car. I have had to clean the blower out several times to remave nests.
Do you

Clean car inside Clean it good That means get all of the chips and pretzels that have fallen between the seats vacuumed out Get the two month old slice of pizza too do not give mice a reason to look for food in your car If they find food they will stay and use your car for a home causing damage as they go

Try this also, take two bars of Irish soap out of the box, place one on the floor board in front of each front seat. Place a paper plate underneath each Mice don't like the scent put off by the soap It works well for keeping mice from getting in and causing that damage we are protecting your car from

If storing the car for an extended amount of time, place the car on jack stands This will help deter mice from entering your car Get the wheels off the ground This will not only keep mice from being able to cause damage to your car but it will also keep your tires from getting flat spots from setting

The mice are not getting into my car. Sorry for the confusion. They are getting in the blower motor compartment. I need to keep them from getting in but I dont know where to start.

The blower motor is inside the car? Another method specific to the blower motor is to remove the blower box assembly and put a piece of fine mesh (chickenwire or similar) between the opening of the box and the sheet metal body and bolt the box back in place

I have had the same issue with mice. They have also urinated on the blower resistor pack twice. I removed the wipers and the the black plastic panel between the windshield and hood. I rolled hardware wire in a cone and forced into the channel, opposite end of wiper mechanism to block that access. I then removed the plastic inner fenders. You have to jack up and remove front tires to gain access. This will allow you access to a elongated hole (one on each side). I cut hardware wire about 5" x 2.5". I then duct taped these over the holes. Plan on spending at least five hours doing all of this unless you have experience. I was cleaning out a vibrating fan several ti m es a year along with mice dying. Its worth t h e effort! Why GM and others designs allow this, who knows?
