Got a mouse house in the vent somewhere...

2000 WJ. V8. I think I have an extra passenger in the duct work in the Cherokee. How do I get in there to remove him and his house? Under the hood, or thru the dash? I don't think there is a cabin air filter for this year, but I could be wrong. THANKS!!!

There is a mopar aftermarket cabin filter Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ - Cabin air filtration system is a great resource. I fear if it is in the ducting, you may need to remove the dash to get into it. I could be wrong.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

I agree. If it doesn't work, you can always go the more difficult route later. I'm assuming this thing is living in there? Because if so, maybe you could try luring him out with something. Once he dies you're gonna have a very limited time to get him out before he starts to pollute your interior atmosphere to unbearable levels.

If it were me, I'd turn the blower on really high and hope the little urchin is upstream of the fan. But I'm kind of vindictive that way.

I had a mouse problem in my old 95 Ranger a couple years back....He died somewhere in the ventilation system somehow.

But I ripped apart the whole dash and ducts, I spent days looking for him, I never could find him.

Needless to say I spent a lot of money on air fresheners that month and even put some bowls of vinegar in the truck at let it sit for a couple days.

The vinegar seemed to do the trick cause I never smelled it again.

My buddy bought the truck off me not too long after that.....

Where under the hood is he getting in? There has to be a spot where fresh air is pulled in.
