A while back ETCG did a video on "some of things we find in customers cars"... guns, feminine hygiene products, dead animals, sex toys, cash, etc... Well it is a big list for sure of what can be found but I think the rodent feces and urine takes the gold medal when it comes to odor... The odor that was being emitted from this car was toxic. The only complaint by the customer was a noise when the blower was turned on....hmmmm, enjoy 🙂

    Luckily in my 60yr career never seen anything like this….but have replaced parts and wires because of rodents.

    The air intake ductwork under the passenger side windshield is an invitation for mice, Don't even have to work very hard to get in. Metal screen over intake seems to stop them.
    I can top that: a lady came in complaining her alternator light was on and she couldn't find her cat, she wanted to know " is there connection between them?" Cat shit, guts, and fur everywhere under the hood.

    Just 'cause I can do it, don't mean I wanna do it.

    One time while driving home from camping I turned on the fan in my 2000 Camry and when the dash started shaking like a dog shittin' tacks I knew exactly what happened. I dropped the blower motor when I got home and sure enough Mr Mouse had taken his last run on the wheel!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Smith says:

    But I know is if you can do it for the right price I don't have to do it. I don't have to know how to do it I just have to know somebody who can do it

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Smith says:

    My Father's son dropped a Easter egg behind the back seat of his Cadillac. The egg didn't crack for at least 6 to 8 months. Never got it the smell out. He finally soaked it back seat and some kind of deodorizer stuff and took it to Joe ripoff car dealership and sold it. Joe thought he was cheating him got it for about 5% under market price. 😎🤞🤢🤮 Personally I always think it's nice to know when one of these hucksters gets karma on his butt

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Todd Miller says:

    There is almost nothing worse than the smell of rotting corpse, she knew.

    "There's a vibration in my fan" was old lady code for I'm too embarrassed to talk about it, please help.

    Warning! After watching this graphic video, you'll smell mouse feces in your house and you'll have to move out!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Weekend Warrior says:

    Yeah, take those fibers and glue them back to the seat cover. Why are cars so badly made that once you get stuff in ducts they become totaled? What a disgrace to the whole scam car industry! Instead of making cars easier to service, they keep adding more electronics crap!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Leon says:

    I’ve had a car that came in for a check engine light and the entire engine bay was covered in mouse crap and smelled of ammonia, same with the interior.

    Years ago while working at chev. dealer I had A beautiful Girl come in with A smell I found A rat under the back seat So I followed the shop rules and put the problen in A plastic bag,, and left it in the car Wow made some people mad,,

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars elwhastrummer says:

    It's amazing what a detail shop can do these days. However, each mess has its own individual "flavor", and some can't be fixed. I worked at a dealership, and someone traded in a car that a dog died in, and was left for a whole summer. The detail dept tried for a week, and then the sales manager called a salvage yard. They took the car and just crushed it, no attempt to salvage any parts off it. It was terrible.

    you need a face mask, protect your lugs for your childs sake..

    Oh That's Nothing!! Had a Ford E250 Morgue Van in my shop once. Smell Complaint. It turned out to be from a "Body" pick up from a Homeless Shelter. The Body Bag "Leaked" into the Floorboard and Sidewall AC Fans. 🤮🤮 We Cleaned it for the Morgue at a cost of around $60.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Turtle says:

    Bro… I wouldn't have put my hand up in there, glovesor not. Lol. I was waiting for a dozen mice to jump out of there and take up residency in your shop. Yikes!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike White says:

    yack…..

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Drew says:

    Why do so many car’s in this area have so many mice problems ?

    ozone gets rid of odors for good

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles M says:

    spray it with some brake cleaner

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WeirdGamerInc Xpected says:

    After so long of smelling something like that you get use to it unless you really hate the smell then its different

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Hastings says:

    Years ago I scrapped a 69 Dodge Dart that I bought at an auction. The previous owner was apparently a heavy smoker and the car smelled like an ashtray. Everything in the car had a layer of nicotine. It was a rather rare version, a slant 6 with a 4 speed trans. The motor and trans were the only things I saved.

    I noticed you wore gloves but not you hat..Didn't want to get your hat Dirty?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen says:

    Spray it with chlorine bleach mixed with water.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pdschu says:

    You could probably get some good improvement by getting rid of the shag seat cover and using an OZONE deodorizer inside the car.

    That is absolutely disgusting… That's a no for me. Hard pass

    The good part of Covid if she can't smell that mess.

    I worked on garbage trucks for almost 4 years. I know about the rats and the battery boxes, the dashboard's, and the evaporator heater court area. Nasty stuff bro.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Dickerson says:

    Where is your face mask, and gloves?

    We had a hurricane back in 2004. I had a small, picnic size, Igloo cooler that we put ice packs and meat in, burgers, chicken, steak, etc. I put that in the upright freezer we had in the garage that was packed with ice. Then it got hot. . . high 90s, 90% humidity, no wind (it's always grossly calm after major storms) about a week or two of just pure hell we found a hotel ON the beach about 20 miles away that had power, had water, had cable and HAD a room. We fled the coop. Spent two weeks there, it was expensive but blissful. We get home, there's power, I drive into the garage and OH. MY. GOD. WHat IS that smell?! Oh, crap biscuits, I forgot the bucket of meat that spent two and a half weeks festering in a slow rot oven. I ran the Igloo down the driveway and left it on the curb (some one or thing took it!). I scrubbed the freezer, left numerous solid air fresheners in it. We finally just duct taped the door shut, unplugged it and forgot about it. Five, six years later I saw a guy collecting scrap and said "Hey, want a freezer?" It still smelled a bit of rotted meat but he took it.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian McDonald says:

    There is a worse smell. I had a 2008 Pontiac Solstice and one fateful night, a groundhog crawled up into the transmission tunnel, ate a bunch of wires trying to get out, and died. It was not a daily driver, so a few days later we happen by to find a vaguely smelly car with a money light on. We made an attempt to clean things, but it was going to require a lift to get under it and take the transmission tunnel covers off.

    We had a good relationship with a local mechanic and worked out a time to drop it off in the evening, and he had his assistants suit up in tyvek suits and gloves, and took care of it. Apparently it "poured" out once the tunnel cover was removed, and they caught "most" of it in a trash can. He fixed the wiring, trashed the trashed components, and relined the tunnel with sound dampening material (Yay! Weight reduction!)

    Took about another 3 months for the smell to work its way out of the vents – luckily a convertible is easy to air out. The mechanic apparently liked the car – he bought himself an '08 a short bit later and his wife drives it. 🙂

    When cars come into my shop that smell too bad or are too dirty I tell them to hit the road. I’m not gonna put my health at risk for a few bucks

    Was trying not to breath through my nose while watching.

    On this one if Eric said, "if I can do it", I would complete the statement with "you don't want to do it"!

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott C says:

    Isn’t this one of the times when the mechanic writes on the bill “customer states vibration from fan…could not duplicate” and gives the car back the same way he got it?

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Ferrick says:

    Need a Yuck button. Can't the heater box be removed and cleaned. At least most if the poo 💩 will be removed ( maybe ).
