Q: Design problem- Mice and small rodents can get in the heater box to stop air flo on 2007 Nissan Versa

Dealership says they have this problem frequently. It could be fixed by putting hardware cloth (wire) under the heater box. I had the heater replaced by the dealer but my regular mechanic said that they should have put a screen over the hole that the mice get in.
Since I live in the country, I will probably not buy another Nisson product. I had the same problem with my 87 Sentra.

Thank you for your reply. I keep DCon under the hood. Don't want to kill the cat. Also the cat would probably become either coyote food or fox food. I will try putting peppermint oil in the heater to repel mice.
