Sorry to be opening up this old thread. But didn't wanted to open a new one for the same issue.
I experienced strong smell of rat urine in the cabin when the fan was turned on day before yesterday, so i took the car to MASS. they, at first said that the whole AC unit may have to removed and cleaned, but later they cleaned the vents and other parts using dettol. there were rat feces in the floor after the cleaning.
they told me that RATS enter through AC air-intake.
can we cover the intake using steel mesh?
Also where is this intake, can anybody show a picture or guide the location?
since there was a strong smell , do i have to really clean the AC unit?
i think the rats entered because we have stopped using kitchen wastes for plants, as we have a bio-gas plant, they are not getting food and now trying new areas, this type of ting never happened with the old car.
now the MASS said that the rats will continue to enter, as they have their path. is this true?
