Mice and rats getting into cabin 03 Taurus

Post by cnb40 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 8:10 pm

Rats and mice are somehow getting into the cabin of my 2003 Taurus.

They have been a problem under the hood and then i started to find mouse in the cabin.

How I have rat poop inside the car too.

Any idea of possible entry points?

Thanks for the answer.

I have tried the following:

bounce dryer sheets - fail
peppermint oil - fail
ultrasound device - fail

cayenne pepper powder (still evaluating, sprayed water on flat areas in engine compartment then dusted wit powder)
------------------------

Advice from Ford dealer:
many places rats can enter, not just at the firewall
check in wheel wells
check cabin air pressure one way shutter door
newer wiring has a soy based component - very attractive to rodents
