I had to fix my wife's car tonight

defective hamster



poor critter - she was at a park yesterday with the kids. When she went to leave she fired the car up and then cranked the fan up to cool the car. She said she heard a *THUNK* and then the car started shaking with a loud whirring coming from the dash.

The noise and vibration were speed related to the HVAC system. She told me and my first thought was 'you caught a critter in your squirrel cage!'

damned if I wasn't right

lucky me - getting to the blower fan in the dash of a 2010 Outback takes no time at all. 3 trim buttons to pop off to remove the kick panel, then 3 torx screws to unbolt the blower fan. Oh, and 1 electrical connector.

rodents have a knack for squeezing into teeny spaces.

do a GIS for 'blower motor nest' and you'll see worse

I have found that peppermint oil helps to keep the critters out.

You did indeed get lucky. I have seen those things so buried, you have to rip the whole dash out to get to them. +1 for Subaru.

As I look at my snow blanketed front yard, I'm more jealous that your wife had to turn the AC on.... Good thing you caught it when you did. Couple of weeks would have gone by and good luck getting that smell out of your car anytime soon.
