    After owning this vehicle for 21 years, this is the first run-in I've had with a "critter".
    I think a mouse got into the car over the winter, and ate the rat poison we put in it for protection.
    We took the back seat apart, but no "body". there.
    We looked under the front seat and no "body" there either!
    So the question is this.
    If there was a nest and babies, how would we get rid of the smell?
    Will the smell just disappear with time?
    How long will it take?
    Do you think charcoal deodorizers would work?
    Any and all suggestions are welcome!!!
     

     

    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

    Mice can get in to the seat itself, or be in the dash area, have you turned on the blower motor, to see if any nest shreads come out, full blast. If there is no body the urin can smell the car up badly, you need to clean and get a urin begone and spray in areas of stong odor.
     

     

    The need for is growing and spring is time to bring out the BARR"S AM for the shake down run, hope all of you are ready as I am.

    I would try this if all else fails. Park car in a shaded area with windows cracked about 1". Put the neighbors cat in the car and leave for 4 hours.....provide food and drink for cat in the floorboard. The mouse comes out for a snack, the cat pounces on him! If the mouse is dead in there, leave cat in car for one full day. The smell of cat poop will get rid of other odors, or atleast make them seem insignificant. Good luck, and I DO NOT advocate the harming of any pets during this procedure. I love cats!

    Usually a bad smell means a dead animal.........you might try going mudding to shake the thing out of wherever it might be "stuck" lol

    heard that it should help to put in some cloths with cat litter (this doesn't help against the mice of course but against the smell wink image)
