Crazy, huh? I went out to the mechanic and saw it for my self.. with the glove compartment box removed, he showed me where the mouse had chewed, I even saw mouse droppings and a crumpled up Hershey's Kiss. Who knew mice like cheese? (Must have been a female mouse!)
This is what the invoice stated; "Inspected heater housing and blower motor housing, found debris and pieces of heater housing blend air door gear with rodent reces, further inspection found where rodent chewed gear free from door and housing. Need to replace heater houseing and blend air door assembly. $599 for parts and labor."
I really would like to save some $$ here .. thanks for any input!
